This means that the old libbfd.so apparently has been linked against a
dynamic libgcc, a corrupt libgcc or maybe not linked against libgcc at
all.  If you're still using Cobalt's development tools - this might also
be the result of a modification - not bug - of their development environment.
In any case that report is the first of it's kind.

Which compiler did you use?  Did you upgrade it?  Since the kernel of the
Qube is 2.0 based it's a bad idea to use the unmodified srpm from sgi.com.

Actually the binutils' installation command sequence is buggy as well,
they should use LD_LIBRARY_PATH but don't if I haven't missed anything ...

Could you run

  objdump --private-headers /usr/bin/ranlib
  objdump --private-headers /usr/lib/libbfd.so

and send me the output?
