Yep, based on *BSD, but Apple provides gcc/g++ and other gnu libs for it
for users. I *think* Darwin is is sorta, kinda opensource version of the
non-gui part of OS X. I dont know if they are on libc6 or not.

Yep, well, it appears they are referenced as being the same thing. All
this time, I though libc6 was a later version of glibc. Google informed me
that I was not correct on this assumption.
