This sounds a bit like an old binutils gold linker issue:
What compiler and linker versions are you using?
Could you send a small .so binary testcase compiled from some trivial
source (please quote the source and build commands), then we can inspect
the binary directly (and when your port is in then we could cross check
on other arches).
