Answering this myself as I found one solution, just in case someone
else have the same problem:

Downgrading the Mandriva binutils RPM from
2.16.91 to the old 2.15.92 from Mandriva 2005 made mythui link.

I wonder if there is something wrong in the Myth code though
and it is just revealed by a more clever/picky linker ??
