[uCsimm] User program sources?

I am very impressed with sizes of user programs, such as vi. I see that
ucLinux does not use shared libraries, while linux programs on standard
Linux distributions are typically order of magnitude larger (even when they
use dynamic linking and symbol stripping).

So, my question is:

Which libc is used (static "Hello world" program on normal Linux/libc6 is
~100K)?
What sources were used to build user programs (there is a legend, that once
upon a time UNIX run with 16K:)
