Getting JDK 1.2 to work under glibc 2.1

As my last act before I move my family to Canada and spend all of my time
packing and unpacking, I was trying to get a glibc 2.1 version of JDK 1.2
available for release. Since linuxppc R5 has no cd yet, I bought the
yellowdog linux distribution and installed it on my home machine.
I was able to get JDK 1.2 to build under glibc 2.1 using this distribution,
but every time I try to invoke the JVM it seg-faults. The seg-faults occur
inside glibc 2.1 (in stderr@@GLIBC2.0) during linking. It seems whenever
the linker can't find a symbol it seems to end is a seg-fault? Is this a
FWIW, this same code works perfectly under glibc 1.99 (Gary's) and works
fine under glibc 2.1 on Linux x86 (or so I am told).
This is with glibc 2.1-1a.ppc.rpm that comes with the yellowdog glibc 2.1
Is this a known problem with glibc 2.1? Is this a ppc specific problem?
What is the most up-to-date glibc 2.1 rpm that I can use to build with?
Will any JDK 1.2 which works with Yellow Dog Linux work with Linux PPC R5?
I don't have much time and I want to get something out (JDK wise) in the
next week or so if possible before I have to pack my machines up.
Thanks for any help or guidance.
