George also had this problem on an x86 box back in November 2006:

David Brown suggests trying the as-test-x.patch from glibc-2.6 in devel, which
as submitted with commit 199874422bbb17772cb0257187151007ab398463 (which
includes the update to 2.6.1, so we can't cherry-pick). Applying the
as-test-x.patch to glibc 2.4 allows glibc to compile.
