Be aware of an unrelated problem: statically linked binaries that
attempt to access functions in the nss libraries will crash.

One possibility is that you do not have the proc filesystem available
when running the program. Certain older libc has issues with
detecting version when /proc was not available.
Another possibility is that you somehow got hold of the glibc that I
built, from the same toolkit. That glibc will not run on kernel <
I guess I don't quite understand why you would want to use kernel 2.2
with glibc 2.2. For embedded purposes, glibc 2.0 will save you a lot
of space; if you just want the newest stuff unconditionally, use
kernel 2.4. The specific libc you are using is rather dated anyway.
While it worked for most purposes it is hardly bug-free. Consider
using CVS glibc, or the glibc from Florian's Debian build environment.
