Okay, before I start... can you please turn off HTML message composition?
Some users here don't take kindly to HTML email. ;-)

Try ./configure --host=mips-unknown-linux-gnu (or mips-unknown-linux-uclibc if
you use µClibc).  Setting --build and --target may help too.

I'm not sure what's going on there... but I'd presume it's related to the
wrong `host` option being set.

Also, make sure you run the compiled binaries on the MIPS machine... they
won't work on x86 (you'll get a "cannot execute binary file" error message).

That's odd.  Do you have Debian installed correctly on the MIPS machine?  What
version/distribution did you install?
