I was able to get profiling working using glibc-2.2.2 and gcc-2.95.3. Both
packages needed changes. The compiler had a stack misalignment correction
for glibc. Glibc didn't save all the registers nor treat sp/fp correctly.
Currently files compiled with -pg need to be linked -static. Specs need to
be updated to do this automatically.
I will send diffs if there is any interest.
