- Subject: Crash during build on UltraSPARC, 32-bit glibc
This crash happens with both glibc-2.3.2 and glibc-2.3.2+debian's
2.3.2-8.diff (roughly CVS as of 2003-07-15 with a few extra patches,
none affecting black magic areas like ld.so.)
Building glibc with gcc-3.3.x (I've seen it with 3.3, 3.3.1, and 3.3.2),
and binutils-184.108.40.206.6 (I've seen it with earlier versions too),
I get a segfault when rpcgen runs (i.e., the first time anything is
run with the new glibc).
No NPTL is used: configuration and building done via this (staid and

(It also segfaults with -march=v8, -mcpu=ultrasparc, and may segfault
with other lesser flags too; not checked yet.)
(generate-asm.sh is nicked from Debian, RH, and everyone else. It does
the expected trickery to make a dual-universe kernel header tree.)

(boom. Something smashed the stack. Hard. Everything above the `file'
parameter to _dl_sysdep_read_whole_file() is garbaged, including the
args to dl_main. Small wonder it crashed.)
rtld and friends are slightly black-magic to me, I'm afraid: I guess
that something's gone fubared with relocation, since it looks like this
is the first inter-translation-unit function call in rtld; but I don't
know enough about the relocation dance to guess what that might be.
Am I on the right track? Has someone else squashed this already?
Or is my cold causing me to hallucinate problems where there are
