Klibc is alive and well - but it's direct opposite to what's offered! Klibc is minimalistic libc - enough to run initscripts, certainly now enough to run heavy-duty apps!
It offers access to very few syscalls (you don't need much to insmod some modules and create few /dev files) and does not follow "latest and greatest" changes in kernel at all.
