"libc" stands for "C library": it contains the basic routines requires
by C programs. The GCC add-on is not matter here. Obiously, .EXE programs
are designed to run only on M$ operating-system; but Linux is able to run
a .exe using a software emulator like DosEmu or Wine.

Finally, you can't install without pains other good software in muLinux,
either then libc5-linked.
