How about having glibc be just x86/x86_64 and moving support for any
other platforms to a separate spell, e.g. glibc-compat. If we do it that
way it's no problem if the version of glibc-compat lags a bit behind

I should think non-NPTL can be dropped indeed. Unless people start
screaming now I'd say just drop it from the spell, if then still people
bemoan its loss it's easy to revert.
