Yes, but I just want install klibc and klcc /tmp or so, execute klcc to
link my utils and copy klibc into my image.
The problem is that I can't build individual parts of klibc and install
them individually.
This whole build procedure is very unhandy and in comparison to dietlibs
compiler wrapper klcc is very poor (it uses static paths, etc.).
