I don't think there is a great deal of specific support for bare metal
environments in OE right now, but there is no reason you couldn't use OE
to build either the toolchains or indeed the complete binary images for
such environments. In some ways it would be nice to see OE become a
little bit Linux-centric.
As for glibc itself, it did use to support ARM bare metal back in the
day and, if glibc is not rejecting that target at configure time, it
probably is still supported to at least some extent today. That said,
this is certainly not one of glibc's core competencies and I personally
would probably use something like newlib in a bare metal environment.
