That trace looks quite different from what I see.  I don't have any
lwp_create in my trace, but I an running an older Solaris 10 patch level.
The placement of the bad brk() call is suspiciously close to where
methods_unicode.so.3 is loaded.

Can you try building with --disable-nls but with PIE enabled and see if that
changes anything?
