thanks a lot for your reply.
Does that failure also happen with a normal (not patched) build?
Those patches are necessary. Otherwise it will fail at many points. You
can see the comments on the patches:
It looks like the issue is with the crtbeginT.o code, not with any
the elfutils objects? I don't immediately know why that particular
object is linked into the shared library. Does the toolchain pick up the
I'm sorry, the correct version of what? Also, that's an external
toolchain and I don't have much information about it :S

It looks like that is a fairly old 0.155 build with several patches
applied. Have you tried latest elfutils 0.160 or current git?
I have tried elfutils-0.160, but I'm having this error:

If you think any of those patches are useful could you submit them so
can review them for inclusion upstream?
Please have a look to those patches here. I think some of them can be
