Problems running strace on MIPS (WRT54G)

I'm trying to run strace on a MIPS box -- a WRT54G to be exact. This device
is running the 2.4.20 kernel and everything is compiled against uclibc
0.9.19 and gcc3.0. Am trying to build strace 4.5.11.
I am building strace as follows:
CC="mipsel-uclibc-gcc -s -Os" \
Which works fine. The binary is build and I copy it to my WRT54G. When I
run it without arguments, I get the help output. However, if I run it with
a command as the argument or -p <pid> strace immediately dies with SIGSEGV.
What could be causing this? Is there something specific in the kernel that
is necessary that I may be missing? I know this is working fine on other
WRT54G's (OpenWRT has a binary--fails with similar results to above on my
system as well).
Thanks for any ideas,
