Why? What is your eventual aim?

I think you perhaps need to ask the newlib developers questions about

I don't know much about newlib but mini-os at least implements a
single/static/monolithic kernel+application binary so I'm not sure how
much use shared libraries will be -- minios has no filesystem support
for one thing so I'm not sure where they would live.
