Dump it into ftp.rfc822.org/incoming

Nope :) - current binutils are just broken concerning mips(el) and gcc doesnt
even compile on mips

aj@suse.de/com ? is working on glibc 2.2. for mips which he says is already
completely working (Without symbol versioning as binutils dont support it).

Some polish guy which i have to search the email address from is working
on the binutils symbol versioning - He has published some patches
which he says should add basic support for symbol versioning for mips.
Nobody has yet confirmed nor have those been integrated into mainstream.

I tried already building the xfree3 packages (with some patches i may
send you) but it has problems building some libs so ther e is nothing
functional afterwards - I had better success with xfree4 ...
