We do have a replacenment for BSD systems and are working on libgio
which eventually should allow to use glib's stdio implementation with
other libcs.  However, this is work in progress and needs adjustments
for most OSes.

Afaik, there is a project to port glibc to a generic POSIX system
which would instantly solve this problem.
