Usually, toolchains named $(ARCH)-elf are bare metal toolchains, i.e
toolchains that don't have a C library with support for an operating
system. Are you sure this toolchain is using glibc ?

In any case, since we don't have access to your toolchain, we have no
way to reproduce/investigate. On other architectures, nano builds fine.
