[Linux-ia64] That getpagesize() problem again!

When trying to install only two packages via RPM in a chroot, this is what I

rpm: ../sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/ia64/getpagesize.c:36: __getpagesize: Assertion
`_dl_pagesize != 0'

Then, abort and core dump.

What I'd like to know is why, in the glibc file mentioned in the error,
__getpagesize is defined as such:

__getpagesize ()
  assert (_dl_pagesize != 0);
  return _dl_pagesize;

(that's glibc 2.2.1, but 2.2 exhibits the same behaviour)

This looks all the more strange that you can define the page size during kernel
compile! A sample test program which I made using the getpagesize() syscall
yields the correct value, though...

What should I do?
