Does atexit work properly there? If yes, the better.
I mean, do you have .hidden __dso_handle symbol in crtbeginS.o?
If not, it will not work properly (and gcc 2.95.x did not have it).
Also, do you have the atexit/i386 patch in (it is in 2.95.4 CVS)?

The __dso_handle patch I posted for gcc 2.95.x was untested, that's why I
asked people who want to compile glibc with gcc 2.95.x to test it out.
Recently some folks have mailed about make check failure even with
__dso_handle patch in some atexit tests. Someone who is able to reproduce it
should debug it, I'm not able to reproduce it with the compilers I'm using
(2.96-RH and 3.0.1).
