Well, it will work, but i forbidden and you e.g. won't be able to package
such libgcj with rpm.
BTW: It is which has the __libc_sigaction@@GLIBC_PRIVATE
reference, so basically all Java binaries are screwed up.

I'll make a patch for glibc to add -fexceptions to pthread_sighandler*
routines, but in the mean time, something like:
libc_handle = dlopen (LIBC_SO_NAME, RTLD_LAZY);
libc_sigaction = dlsym (libc_handle, "sigaction");
dlclose (libc_handle);

(where LIBC_SO_NAME would be determined by configure (e.g. through ldd
some_trivial_program linked with proper multi-lib options))
or something like:

#include <link.h>
#include <stddef.h>
#include <string.h>

#if __GLIBC__ > 2 || (__GLIBC__ == 2 && __GLIBC_MINOR__ > 2) \
    || (__GLIBC__ == 2 && __GLIBC_MINOR__ == 2 && defined(DT_CONFIG))

static const char *libc_so_path;

static int
mtf_libc_iterate_callback (struct dl_phdr_info * info, size_t size, void * ptr)
       const char *p;
       if (size < offsetof(struct dl_phdr_info, dlpi_phdr))
               return -1;
       if (info->dlpi_name == NULL)
               return 0;
       p = strstr(info->dlpi_name, "/");
       if (p != NULL)
               if (! libc_so_path
                   || strncmp (info->dlpi_name, "/lib/", 5) == 0)
                       libc_so_path = info->dlpi_name;
       return 0;

  if (dl_iterate_phdr (mtf_libc_iterate_callback, NULL) < 0)
    error ("Couldn't iterate over shared libraries");
  if (libc_so_path == NULL)
    error ("Couldn't find");
  libc_handle = dlopen (libc_so_path, RTLD_LAZY);
  libc_sigaction = dlsym (libc_handle, "sigaction");
  dlclose (libc_handle);
