Because you mentioned Redhat 9, I have to assume that you are cross
compiling from i386 to mips, is that correct? If so, you need make
ARCH=mips and you have to specify the cross compile tools as well,
something like this :-
make ARCH=mips CROSS_COMPILE=/usr/bin/mips-linux- ...
If you are doing a native mips compile then the problem is that your
version of gcc does not like one or more of the command options, the
unknown option is being treated as a filename.
