You might want to get a gentoo system up and running, and
try building an entire distribution with your changes.
That's how a couple of very early adopters of the recent
glibc changes tested things out before the mainstream
distros got around to providing packages.

BTW the LSB brand is, from what I can tell,
oriented around zero external dependencies simply because
that's the only way to be really bulletproof.  If you
run into trouble because you're doing something different,
please don't blame the LSB... I'd hate for anyone to
think the LSB was flaky because a rebel used the LSB
libraries and tools in a way not intended by the authors
of the LSB.
