__thread support is needed when TLS is used (not supported by uClibc yet)

And if yes, how can I get __thread support?  Will it help to upgrade to gcc4? (May be a good time anyway, gcc-4.1.1 is due tomorrow.)

Do you mean you try to use cross-compiler gcc to build glibc as well?

glibc-2.4 is pretty new and requires new gcc/binutils for sure
