The problem with the libc build machine presently is, that there is *one* 
library for all of the different avr target families (avr3,4,5). If the 
location of EEARH or any other register varies within one famly, the code is 
bound to fail on some of the targets. For the atmega169 this is a known bug 
that is documented. Maybe this is also the case for other controllers.
My personal recommendation for this issue is:
Do not use the library functions for the eeprom as long as the library build 
machine has been changed to the one device - one libc.a principle. 

I do not know, frankly speaking, whether this is already implemented in 
avr-libc 1.2.0 . ( I myself am still working with 1.0.2 .)

I'd like to suggest you to transfer the source files for eeprom access to your 
project and make shure that they are compiled with the appropriate -mmcu 
compile switch.
