It looks like this has been fixed in glibc CVS 2003-02-23.  The old
pause file (sysdeps/unix/common/pause.c) has been deleted and
sysdeps/posix/pause.c has been added, containing:

#include <signal.h>
#include <unistd.h>

/* Suspend the process until a signal arrives.
   This always returns -1 and sets errno to EINTR.  */
__libc_pause (void)
  sigset_t set;

  __sigemptyset (&set);
  __sigprocmask (SIG_BLOCK, NULL, &set);

  /* pause is a cancellation point, but so is sigsuspend.
     So no need for anything special here.  */

  return __sigsuspend (&set);
weak_alias (__libc_pause, pause)

Either upgrade ia64 to glibc from CVS or modify your existing glibc to
use the above code for pause.
