I (finally) have the SGI Linux/MIPS cross-compiling tools packed up ready
for installation in the crossdev directory (I made them once during Easter,
but due to an unfortunate reboot of my Challenge-L I lost it all as I kept
it in /tmp! :-/ -- and then I didn't have more time for a while).
(It's not on ftp.fnet.fr yet as I didn't find any writable incoming/ to ftp
it to. I've emailed Luc and Stoned for advise about where to put it.)
However, these tools are for little-endian Linux. I have an Olivetti M700-10
so I don't need big endian (I'm just using the SGI for cross-compiling).
I'm sure Dave & co can easily (and may even prefer to) build the big-endian
versions themselves, but as I have Ralf's required patches + fix for the
GCC strength-reduce bug already installed in my sources I could produce an
eb version quickly I guess -- if someone wants it. Just let me know.
