Merely passing the test suite is fine, so far it has failed right when trying to start postmaster. > In addition, I built with gcc-4.1.

Thank you for trying this out. However, I'm sceptical: postgresql-8.1 still gives the same error when built with gcc-4.1: http://buildd.debian.org/fetch.php?&pkg=postgresql-8.1&ver=8.1.4-4&arch=mips&stamp=1152713470&file=log&as=raw http://buildd.debian.org/fetch.php?&pkg=postgresql-8.1&ver=8.1.4-4&arch=mipsel&stamp=1152713545&file=log&as=raw 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!
