A few details that might be informative:

1: I'm guessing that this is a prepackaged glibc-targetted x86->armel cross toolchain from Linaro, specifically their 2010 release?

2: I guess you're manually duplicating 
REALGCC=/tools/arm/arm-2010q1/bin/gcc musl-gcc program.c -o program.o

3: Does this occur even with a trivial program (hello world or 
int main(){ }) ?

Googling "hidden symbol is referenced by DSO" I find that similar problems occurr with newlib when not linked with libgcc.
So it would probably help figure it out if you attached your config.mak and musl-gcc.specs.
