My main concern was that I was stuck between a rock and a hard
place. Things are still very broken, but I'm trying to do a total rebuild
now, after building a new kernel.
Noone really did help with any suggestions on either how to get out of
this dilemma, nor why libc for me has broken down.

Oh well. I'll see if I can get unstuck. Expect an announcement in a week
or so (the bloat and speed issues should be raised in priority I think).
