$ cat test.c
#include <stdio.h>
extern char **environ;
foo(int argc, char **argv, char **env)
{ printf("%i, %p, %s, %p, %p\n", argc, argv, *argv, env, environ); }
__attribute__((section(".init_array"))) static void *foo_constructor = &foo;

$ gcc test.c && ./a.out foo
2, 0xbfd877f4, ./a.out, 0xbfd87800, 0xbfd87800

maybe someone knows of an easier way to get a pointer into the init_array 
section ...
