I asked Ariel, your box is on it's way.  I hope the transport guys
hurry as I'm getting pretty close to a useable distribution.  Appended
is a list of the RPMs which I'm currently using.  They're mostly from
the RedHat 4.9 aka Mustang distribution.  There are just a few things
left to fix to build the entire distribution:

 - rpm just returns to the shell prompt after short time for some packages.
   Haven't yet tried to figure out what's the problem.
 - some packages containing shared libraries link them against libc.  While
   this is the right thing to do it will break with the binutils 2.7 we're
   still using.  Fix: finally upgrade to binutils 2.7.
 - some other packages depend on the presence of X11 for at least building.
   Among them for example tcsh.  Should be fixed rsn as Miguel had some
   X clients up.
 - A couple of other packages contain real bugs, usually pretty trivial
   things.
 - yet other package don't build because they depend on other packages that
   don't build, need to be ported to MIPS (Kaffee, eg.) or that are just
   useless on a MIPS box like for example Lilo.

I'll start to upload the SRPM packages listed below plus little endian
binaries.  All in all that's over 150mb, so don't hold the breath.
