I don't know where you got this constant's name from, it's name is
EM_MIPS_RS4_BE (MIPS R4000 big endian) in all literature and header files
I've seen.  RS3000 series from MIPS was a workstation series of the former
Mips Computer Systems, Inc.  not a processor.

The constant is probably no longer in use - if it ever has been. it's only
use I've ever seen is in tools that read ELF but never in tools that write
ELF or in existing ELF files.

Cc'ed to the Linux/MIPS mailing lists; maybe the oldtimers there can comment.
