Look at the source of nxlib and see if wchar support can be
compiled optionally (usually it's protected by #ifdefs).

If so, remove wchar support from nxlib by passing an appropriate
flag to the configure script if possibl. Else pass appropriate CFLAGS
via the Makefile (e.g. CFLAGS+=-DNO_WCHAR or something like that) or,
failing that, hack the config.h file if nxlib has one.

As a last resort simply patch out wchar support completely,
or try to enable wchar support in uClibc (no idea if that
