This usually means that -fPIC got left out of the CFLAGS.  If that's not the 
case, something is wrong with the compiler.  Can you use objdump to find out 
which module has the bad relocs, then look at the assembler source to find out 
where they come from?

Please don't.  Performing PC24 relocs at load time involves writing to the 
text segment and we want to avoid that.

>I can build glibc-2.1.1, but the ld.so segfaults instantly.

What gcc and binutils are you using?  There shouldn't be any magic involved.  
I built glibc the other day using the binutils and gcc debs from potato and it 
seemed OK.
