Hi,

 For anyone interested: I've made a few MIPS/Linux-related RPM packages
available.  Included, there are mipsel-linux native development tools,
libraries, as well as certain programs sort-of needed for a machine to run
interactively.  There are cross-development tools for the i386-linux host
and the mipsel-linux target.  Finally, there are host-independent
cross-development libraries for the mipsel-linux target.

 The binary packages expect glibc-2.1.3 or newer for the i386-linux system
and glibc-2.1.90 or newer for the mipsel-linux system to be available. 
Source packages generally expect glibc-2.1 or newer but were only built
using the versions mentioned above.  Exact requirements are provided in
every package separately.  Rpm-3.0 or newer is required to rebuild any of
them.

 Also available are rpm rc and macro files which I use for both native
builds and cross-compilations -- rpm doesn't support cross-compilations
directly (i.e. via a command line option) but might be configured
appropriately via macros provided spec files can handle them.

 All the above stuff is available at 'ftp://ftp.ds2.pg.gda.pl/pub/macro/'. 
The server operates continuously, but during off-peak hours foreign hosts
receive greater bandwidth.  Off-peak hours are since 10pm till 8am, local
time, which is now CEST, i.e. UTC+0200.  During this time, the bottleneck
link has bandwidth of 10Mb/s. 

 The whole repository consumes about 170MB at the moment but the size may
vary as updates are uploaded.  If you find a package is missing (e.g.
there is a binary package, but no corresponding source one) please let me
know.  Any comments, updates and fixes are welcomed as well. 

  Maciej
