RedHat 7.1 cross toolchain kernel build problem

Does anyone have any ideas why the i386->mipsel cross toolchain at
oss.sgi.com:/pub/linux/redhat/7.1/RPMS/i386/toolchain* fails to build
vgacon.o in the kernel's drivers/video directory?


I get the following errors from the assembler:
{standard input}:4683: Error: expression too complex
{standard input}:4683: Fatal error: internal Error, line 1980,
../../tools-20011020/gas/config/tc-mips.c
make[3]: *** [vgacon.o] Error 1

Apparently the compiler has generated assembly which the assembler cannot
handle.
I compiled to a .s assembly file and line 4683 was simply 'sb $6,$5($3)'.


Thanks,

Roger
