Hmm, bummer. How stable is crosscompiling to mips?

Any reason why binutils doesn't support it yet? It should be a standard ELF

Right now I'm struggling with the filesystem, installing over NFS gives me
`text file busy' all the time so I can't really install something without

then there is little I can do.
