I tried to start withit although i havent got to much knowledge of compilers,
libcs etc - I am willing to set up an autobuilder if we are in the
state of doing so.

I started to compile a couple of packages (All with broken dependencies
due to missing dpkg database).

Currently i am a bit stopped as i have no clue what to do with
glibc 2.1/egcs etc ...

I have 2 Decstations (Little Endian R3000@40Mhz and R4000@50Mhz) both
with 3 SCSI Controllers, Ethernet and FDDI (Which currently is unsupported).

There is someone working on "Debian/linux-mips" (Big Endian) but
i cant remember ....
