Nb. INSTALL file in glibc 2.5 says:

     Use maximum optimization for the normal (static and shared)
     libraries, and compile separate static libraries with debugging
     information and no optimization.  We recommend not doing this.
     The extra optimization doesn't gain you much, it may provoke
     compiler bugs, and you won't be able to trace bugs through the C

Is --enable-omitfp really wanted?
