Is configure correct defining __mips64__, then?

No, because the userland is 32bit.

Okay, good.

                                   But the check in configure might be
a bit too simple-minded to know that... So you'll have to help it

(disclaimer: haven't looked at the actual configure script)

It is just relying on config.guess. But I see now that the version of config.guess and config.sub in the package are from 2003. I'll update them and try again. Thanks a lot so far!
