I was hopefully right saying that the symbols were not found, but 
Florian was even more right saying that the most probable reason of 
those symbols not being found were object files not found due to 
different paths not known by the compiler.

No, that wouldn't help I'm afraid. The symbols are necessary for 
proper initialization and finalization of libc.

I'd say that Thomas' suggestion points to the same direction as 
Florian. Your output sent in response to the Florian's request 
contains a reference to "/usr/lib/gcc/sparc-linux-
gnu/4.6/../../../sparc-linux-gnu/" as one of paths for searching the 
libraries - obviously, normalizing this path gives the path suggested 
by Thomas.
