Declare the functions with __attribute__((constructor)).  For example:

  static void __attribute__((constructor)) my_startup (void)
    /* put here your code */

Note that if you have several such functions, the order in which they are 
called is unpredictable (it's the order in which the linker sees them, 
and you have no real control on that).
