 Which version of ls?  Versions up to 4.0 did not, indeed.

 Of course, you may force version 4.1 not to make use libpthreads, either. 
Just convince the configure script in the usual way not to use
clock_gettime().

 I just checked ls 4.1 compiled for i386-linux in a glibc 2.2.3
environment:

$ LD_TRACE_LOADED_OBJECTS=1 ls
        librt.so.1 => /lib/librt.so.1 (0x40020000)
        libc.so.6 => /lib/libc.so.6 (0x40032000)
        libpthread.so.0 => /lib/libpthread.so.0 (0x4015a000)
        /lib/ld-linux.so.2 => /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x40000000)

so it's not MIPS-specific at all...  Why would it, anyway?
