Yup, you really need to use binutils together with libc 5.4.x
(x=10 is a safe bet). Another possibility (untested, though) is
binutils + libc 5.2.18.

I had the same problem - undefined reference to __start/stop___ex_table_
before, when I was using binutils and libc 5.2.18. Upgrading to
5.4.10 solved the problem for me.

  It is better to keep your mouth shut and be thought a fool,
            than to open it and remove all doubt.
