Yes, I've tried this too, without success.

Just of curiosity, I tried the exact prerelease version the
was using for test - it failed too.

I suppose the problem is in Gcc.

I tried gcc-4.2.4-glibc-2.6 and glibc-2.7, with no avail.
I suppose the Debian version of 4.2.4 has its own set of patches.
Also, the combination of latest tools make it work:

Yes, it is disabled by default.

Thanks a lot!
