I guess not. I'm not a glibc person though...

I'm not sure there are any.

Yes, you certainly need to mmap /dev/mem.

I guess the obvious question is do you have ISA slots in the system
you're trying to build for? And you don't want to use the in-kernel
stuff? Do you really *need* isapnptools? :)
If you have ISA, it's probably a PReP? I've done user space IO simply by
mmap'ing (offset = 0x80000000), then just doing accesses normally:
(char *)ioregion = mmap(...)
ioregion[0x3fc] = 0x1;
