It's just that nobody did the work of porting glibc. A lot of has
changed between glibc 2.0 and 2.1 (and also between 2.1 and 2.2).
I've decided to port glibc 2.2 for MIPS. This involved a number of
patches and but I don't have the time to backport everything - and I
will not support such a backport at all.
All my glibc 2.2 patches have been added to the glibc archives and
therefore will be in the official sources of 2.2.
