Well, that confirms 2.16.91.0.[34] is h0rked.  That's the same error (iirc) that 
I saw w/ .3.  2.16.91.0.2 was the only one that built glibc correctly.

Whether this is a glibc or binutils bug, is, however, uncertain.  There's a new 
glibc-2.3.6 in portage -- that might be worth a shot if you're feeling brave.  I 
haven't gotten to testing that yet as I'm still tweaking some new kernel 
releases, probably followed by newer mips-headers.
