uClibc is by no means minimal, even though it's smaller than glibc.

In my opinion a minimal system has all libraries in source code form
and statically links and compiles them with the programme's source code
(much like templates in C++). You can do a lot of optimisations using
this approach (constant propagation and dead code elimination, inlining
etc.), the programmes can be sequentially read from disk and will be
much smaller.
