Excuse me, ripping out and replacing a libc is certainly something I'd not bet on for any largeish codebase. But we are talking about selecting a libc (or deciding to write our own). In which case, if I had any slight doubt of legality of using a LGPLv2.1 libc (and the considering the possibility that it'd move to LGPLv3) I'd also consider writing my own. Exactly the type of risk analysis you propose, but the result is different.
