The GCC manual says:

     *Warning:* if you use the `-malign-double' switch, structures
     containing the above types will be aligned differently than the
     published application binary interface specifications for the 386.

This is likely to be the source of the problem.  Make sure you build
not only libgcc, but also libio, libstdc++ and probably also glibc
with this flag.
