I just tried to build glibc-2.2 (CVS-2000-12-28) for debian-mips and
it still has the "Bus Error" problem. We are currently using binutils
2.10.1.0.2 and gcc 2.95.2 + CVS from 2.95 branch. 

Can you please post both patches, so that we can verify which one is
missing in our build.

The gcc/binutils combination seams to work correctly as far as I can
see. I managed to compile xfree 4.0.2 linked agains 2.1.95-1.1. What
problems did you have with X?
