I can confirm that the kernel seems to be the culprit. After my last 
report I have now just downgraded the kernel from 2.6.9-11.ELsmp to 
2.6.9-5.0.5smp, which solved the problem. I have successfully built 
glibc rpms, including a set built with -mno-tls-direct-seg-refs.

So there seems to be something wrong with the latest kernel.
