Many libraries, like glibc, are backwards compatible when we link it 
against an older version, it also works when it runs with a more recent 
version of the library. The OpenWrt SDK is build against an old Debian 
so it can be used with such an old systems, but it also works with a 
recent Arch Linux for example.
