i cant help  much (lhat kind of code just makes my head spin) but i reckon
the answer may lie in sys/mman.h

try diffing all the include files that the program calls on before and after
the gcc rebuild the binutils rebuild and the glibc rebuild

hope ive helped in some way ;-) (even if ive just given you summit to laugh
