Just for the reference: which compiler and binutils are you using? I know this
is a touchy subject (Hi Jes :-), but it could give some hints.

I'm using a cross-compiler I compiled on my PPC somewhere in 1996 or early
1997, so the gcc must be some 2.7.*-version. It used to be linked with
glibc-1.99 and was succesfully `binfixed' for glibc-2.*.

I can look up the real version during my next dial-in session.
