[U-Boot-Users] can't resolve symbol _GLOBAL_OFFSET_TABLE_

I looked up the symbols defined in libc.so.6 using "mipsel-linux-nm". Now
although _GLOBAL_OFFSET_TABLE_ is defined but it is not defined as global.
Here is the output of the nm command

000b9370 T glob
000bab24 T glob64
000b89f0 T globfree
000ba290 T globfree64
000b8d28 t glob_in_dir

I don't have much idea about this, but could this be the reason for the
error I am getting?

We're using binutils-2.14 in the ELDK and don;t see any such problems.
