 For me this sounds like having problems with your native compiler/run-time libs
installation, your compiler producing executables which needs the glibc-2.2.3 version
for your installed '/lib/libc.so.6' but your current run-time library is not version
the version 2.2.3...

 In your case I would use the 'objdump -p powerpc-eabi-ar' and look at the last lines
in the output. If this gives the 'GLIBC_2.2.3' there, you must fix your native compiler
first to use some earlier glibc. If you now link against a 2.2.3-version of 'libc.so.6',
the run-time version must be the same version. Sometimes there aren't dependencies and
the executables will work ok with older 'libc.so.6's, sometimes they don't... The
produced 'powerpc-eabi-ar' can be one of these cases...
