Looks like a similar problim is documented here:

(their solution was to rebuild GCC without the  -fno-omit-frame-pointer option)

Which version of Binutils?

If it is up to date, I don't know what the problem is.

You would have to look at the exact commands being passed to the linker as well as look at the objects involved.

Hi All,

I'm trying to get openembedded to build me a 32bit MIPS toolchain using EGLIBC. GCC 4.4.4 seems to compile ok, but when I get to eglibc 2.10 and 2.11 the compiler spits this error:

It appears the Debian MIPS stack uses EGLIBC and GCC 4 successfully. Does anyone know what the problem is, and how I can fix it?

Google has been of limited use for this error.
