This seems to work. Btw, it took me a while to find out what 'sjlj' stands 
for :)

I tried setting --enable-__cxa_atexit as an extra gcc option, but got an 
undefined reference afterwards.

I know this thread, but it is unclear to me how to force usage of stack 
unwinding. unwind-dw2-fde.o seems not to work (that's why I started this 
thread). Now, if I edit toolchain/gcc/4.1.1/100-uclibc-conf.patch to not 
change LIB2ADDEH, then unwind-dw2-fde-glibc.o is built (and would be used), 
but it contains an undefined reference to dl_iterate_phdr.
