Good to know. I've managed to scavenge some alien'ed redhat packages of
gcc and binutils. I succeeded in building H.J. Lu's binutils 220.127.116.11,
but the latest gcc snapshot is not building (000828). I'll start winding
back snapshots until I find one that works. After that, I'm going to
start really working on generating a quality set of toolchain debs.

I may take you up on this, but for now, I'll be fine (now that gcc works
:-P). In the meantime, I'll see if I can comb the binutils list for any
patches that might apply to mips/mipsel that we may need that might have
been applied after HJ released this version.
FYI, if I find any, I'll start patching the debian package and upload a
It's good to have the binutils maintainer interested in the port, isn't
