 All packages which names start with <cpu>-<os> are cross-development
packages.  Mipsel-linux-binutils is a package providing binutils targeted
to mipsel.  You cannot build the package for the mipsel-linux host (which
the .rpmrc-mipsel configuration file sets up) as this wouldn't be a
cross-development package.  For this package to build just run: 

$ rpm -ba SPECS/mipsel-linux-binutils-2.10.91-2.spec

 You can only change the host system with .rpmrc-* files.  The target
system is hardcoded in cross-development packages and the build system is

 I hope this helps.
