Description of problem:
I am trying to get the RedHat 8.0 rpms to compile and build on a ia64 platform
(originally 7.2). For the most part I have been successful. Now I am trying to
narrow the problems to their root cause. This latest one occurs when I try to
run /usr/bin/consolehelper. I am using glibc-2.3.1-30 (rawhide). 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.run "gdb consolehelper"
2.Type 'run' and press enter
3.Watch bug com up:

Actual Results:  Starting program: /usr/bin/consolehelper 

Program received signal SIGTRAP, Trace/breakpoint trap.
0x20000000000029c0 in _start () at ../sysdeps/ia64/dl-machine.h:520
