Well, that was a lot of time ago...
but this week I tried compiling glibc-2.3.4 and went into the exact same
problems, with very similar environment.
If you did not yet succeeded resolving the problem... what I did at last was
to rebuild gcc.
I came to the conclusion that, since my gcc was built when I still had older
version of binutils (2.12.something), it configured some of its defaults
according to that version (look at the man page of gcc, at the section
dealing with the option --static-libgcc for example).
after I rebuilt gcc, this time aware of the newly installed ld, I started libc
compilation all over again. this time it worked out of the box. all the tests

time ago. Thank you for mailing the list and explaining your
particular solution to the problem. To be honest I don't remember what
I did, but future i686-pc-linux-gnu glibc testing has been
