I have a cross compilation toolchain that successfully builds a linux
2.6.11 kernel (o32) for my mips target, and elf executables to run on

I am trying to cross compile native binutils/gcc and glibc to be able to
build on the target, using:

binutils 2.14
gcc 3.3.5
glibc 2.3.5

I configure them with --host=mips-linux-gnu --build=i686-pc-linux-glibc2.2 and 

After installing them in the target root filesystem, I try to compile a simple 
"Hello World" program, and I get the following error:

./ccYlX6Ij.o: linking abicalls files with non-abicalls files
Bad value: failed to merge target specific data of file ./ccYlX6Ij.o
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

Passing -a to gas, I see the .abicalls in the object file. Trying to compile 
with -mno-abicalls removes the .abicall from the object file but does not 
remove the error.

I have tried different versions of binutils/gcc/glibc, but I don't know if the 
problem comes from glibc, gcc or gas.

Does anybody have any clue about what's going on?

I enclose the output of,

gcc hello.c -I /usr/include -B /usr/lib -Wl,-t,-M -Wa,-a -mno-abicalls

in case it helps. 

Thanks a lot,
