That's normal in 7.4, there is little I can do about it. It was fixed
in 8.0, and it's nothing to worry about.

Merely passing the test suite is fine, so far it has failed right when
trying to start postmaster.

Thank you for trying this out. However, I'm sceptical: postgresql-8.1
still gives the same error when built with gcc-4.1:


So maybe the buildds run some different package versions. Also, bug
357603 has indicated that this was a problem with binutils, not with
gcc (if using gcc-3.3 the problem occurs, too, and in Sarge it worked
well with gcc-3.3).

I'll try another upload of p-7.4 with mipsen re-enabled, I can always
disable it quickly again if it still fails.

Thanks for your investigations!
