I told you before that mixing two different environments is just
calling for trouble. It may sound harsh, but you just get what you
asked for.

This is indeed most probably the reason.

For ELDK, run something like

-> ls -l /opt/eldk/arm/lib/libuClibc*
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 309984 Jan 22  2007 /opt/eldk/arm/lib/libuClibc-0.9.27.so

which will tell you that ELDK 4.1 uses uClibc-0.9.27. 

Do similar in your OpenWrt envrionment.

There is no uClibc support in ELDK 4.2. We dropped it, as there was
basicly zero demand for it, and it makes really little sense
technically in most real-life applications.
