Do you use glibc 2.5 or have you ported linuxthreads to glibc 2.14?
Last time I've checked ARM for MMU-less CPUs had no support for glibc at all and was able to compile only tiny number of programs - usually old versions.
There are nothing wrong with playing with old/unusual hardware and software but it just makes no sense to worry about ARM for MMU compatibility when you develop libraries for modern Linux. Probably even less sense then trying to support Windows by default.
