Perhaps Guido can elaborate further on this?  I've been using gcc to
generate 64-bit ELF binaries on IRIX, so I'm pretty sure that works well,
although its possible that binutils are broken (but for what it's worth,
IRIX 64-bit binutils are broken, too -- the system assembler doesn't do
label addition properly).

More to the point: how can I help this effort on mips64?  What/where are
the current debian biarch packages (toolchain-source, dpkg-cross, dpkg,
apt) so I can hack & submit patches to support mips64.
