There is no "one" libc. Most *nixes have their own. Linux and a few newer
*nix-Mach hybrids (like BeOS) use glibc.

None of them are portable to non *nixes to my best knowledge, so they are
not really crossplatform.

gcc is a different matter, at least in the open source world it is fairly
dominant. But again, mostly on *nix.
