Hello Maciej,

For 64-bit builds you probably want to use fairly recent versions or you
risk hitting serious bugs that used to exist in older versions.  Using
David's patch (or preferably mine ;-) -- as available here: "http://www.linux-mips.org/cgi-bin/mesg.cgi?a=linux-mips&i=Pine.LNX.4.55.0406281509170.23162%40jurand.ds.pg.gda.pl";;
which I keep using with GCC 4.0.0) is probably the lesser evil.


 Without going into details - what difference between your and David's
patch ? :) I'm in doubts which one is more suitable for me...


FWIW: My current patch is quite similar to Maciej's.

David Daney.
