The problems are in GCC not uClibc.

See: http://gcc.gnu.org/ml/gcc-patches/2006-06/msg00815.html

That was just a prototype patch and it has been a while since I tried it 
so I don't know if it is still sufficient.

Basically you need to disable -Dinhibit_libc and have the proper dwarf2 
exception handling code built into libgcc.

In some cases there are problems getting the proper libraries linked so 
that dl_iterate_pheader (sp?) is resolved in uClibc.
