One problem with glibc 2.28 is that many (most?) packages that bundle
gnulib needs patching.  I've attached patches below that fixes some of
the packages.  Is the "substitution" style okay, or are origin patches

Another thing we should get in is coreutils: version 2.30 has a recent
enough gnulib, but I could not figure out the new test failure.  Any
takers?  :-)

I will push patches that adjusts bootstrap-tarballs to the new static
outputs shortly.
