I do not understand what you mean with rebuilding every library for an
application. Do you mean those available on L4Re already or new ones?

Actually it's an quite easy choice. L4Linux is an OS layer but not your
choice for your target application. So you need a different one that
better fits your target application, such as scalability. That can maybe
be L4Re, maybe it's L4Re + some additions, maybe something different.
Possibilities exist.
