Updating glibc is a little non-trivial due to compatibility issues, extra
patches requires, version dependencies to the build environment and other
constraints so I deciede to drop the glibc documentation when I replaced
the old MIPS Howto document with the current size.
The good news are that the glibc world is getting somewhat simpler again
so maybe it's time to re-introduce some glibc documentation.
That said glibc will probably always stay somewhat non-trivial and most
people are probably best off by just using binaries.
