Are you using the Intel crosstools from the crossdev directory?
You'll need newer ones, we think, and I'm going to build a new tarball
shortly.  (Tonight?)

When I get my crosstools working again, I'll build something to put
up.

(I can't test it, unfortunately, but hey...)

Don't think so.
If it's not little-endian (#ifndef __MIPSEL__), then it's big-endian
and needs to be fixed.
