I don't know what this project's stance is towards libc.

Oh, but I mean in Rust generally. Ideally any language that is not C would not depend on libc.

Ah. Well, right now, the standard library relies on a libc of some kind. If you use only core, then there's no reliance on a libc.

There has been some interest in making it easy to have stdlib without a libc; and some refactorings to std that may make it easier to do so, but those haven't come to fruition just yet.
