Which leads me to check syscall.h, then I noticed a big difference from my x86 version to this version, all the SYS_ entries are missing. Did I build it wrong or is this a glibc issue, due to the addition of the mips32 and mips64 directories.

Here is my bug report with the glibc folks for everyone's reference.
http://sources.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=758

We've bumped into this on the gentoo-side of things. The fix we're using (for now) is this a modified version of this patch here: http://lists.debian.org/debian-mips/2004/01/msg00036.html

The above patch wasn't intended for 2.3.4 by default I believe, so it doesn't apply cleanly. It had to be re-diffed for 2.3.4. You can find this version here: http://dev.gentoo.org/~kumba/tmp/6630_mips_fix-syscall_h-again.patch

The resulting bits/syscall.h isn't the cleanest thing, but strace will build against it and it does appear to work.
