That was it, thanks for the hint.  Before doing another build I've added
a few packages and made minor changes here and there and one was
changing the kernel for a TimeSys real-time kernel (of the 2.4.18
series) - not a minor change, this one.  It turns out that glibc (even
glibc standard from the 2.2.5 series) won"t compile against the headers
provided by this kernel.
