Sorry, I that was GLib, not glibc. I just noticed that subtle but
important naming difference. So I think it might get hard to do what I
want, I guess. I would be glad to get some input anyway. How deeply
entwined are GLib calls into MC? Does it use many of them or might it be
possible to "expand" a few in order to get rid of the dependancies?
Being naive again, probably, and speculative as well. Thanks for bearing
with it.

Have you tried building glib for you platform ?

Another question which arises now is: Which was the latest MC version
*not* using GLib? I am currently running mc-4.5.0, and it works fine.

Unfortunately I cannot tell but it really would be something old - more than 6 years old...
