I have more news on the glibc 2.1 issue.

The Problem is that the MIPS ABI does say that a specific section
in the Dynamic Linker must be read only, which is different
to all? other architectures. The Dynamic linker
currently does use this space as a temporary buffer on other
Architectures - This means a "Segmentation Fault" on Linux/Mips.

Andreas Jaeger is going to do the work for glibc 2.2 which seems
not to be trivial ... Probably this work can be backported to 2.1.
