Segmentation fault while dynamic linking

The simple program below produces a segmentation fault when dynamically
linked. When linked with '--static', it works fine.

What can be the problem?

The Segmentation Fault occurs at a lot of programs like busyboxes 'ls' and
unfortnately also at gdbserver.

My configuration: Kernel 2.4.4, glibc 2.2.2, bash 2.05, FADS, MPC855T

#include <stdio.h>
#include <time.h>
int main(int argc, char** argv){
   time_t tm;

   printf("This line is displayed\n");
   localtime(&tm);  //produces Segmentation fault
   printf("This one not\n");

   return 0;
