As promised here the results:

I now tried to build

* arm-GTA02-linux-gnueabi
* Linux headers 2.6.24
* glibc 2.6.1
* gcc 4.1.2 with softfloat

Now the issue is that there is no glibc-linuxthreads-2.6 to download  
from http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/glibc/ - just a 2.5. And although the  
glibc-2.6 sources include nptl there is still no ARM support.

So I ask myself where to get the ARM nptl or the 2.6 linuxheaders  
sources&patches from... This appears to be some hidden and secret  
project within Open Embedded or Openmoko :-)

Maybe I will find something in http://cgit.openembedded.net/cgit.cgi?url=openembedded/tree/packages/glibc/glibc_2.6.1.bb

Finally it would be nice to get some information about which  
components are really built into these toolchains:
