older binutils tarball at linux-mips.org was also fixed.

You should upgrade to something newer than 2.13. :-)

Note that those arguments are partially contradicting each other.
-mips4 -64 -mcpu=r8000 -64 -64 -march=r8000 -mips4
is (with 2.15 gas) better expressed as
or, more suitable for r10000, with
