FYI, my glibc includes

        * sysdeps/mips/dl-machine.h (MAP_BASE_ADDR): Commented out.

        * sysdeps/mips/rtld-ldscript.in: Removed.
        * sysdeps/mips/rtld-parms: Likewise.
        * sysdeps/mips/mips64/rtld-parms: Likewise.
        * sysdeps/mips/mipsel/rtld-parms: Likewise.

As I mentioned before, the resulting glibc works fine with the IRIX ABI
executables. But I have no ideas about DSOs.
