 I'll try then, as soon as I can.

 Really?  I've thought Debian used them for MIPS distribution builds if 
nobody else.  AFAIK, ten years on and these systems (I mean the whole 
family) are still about the only ones reasonably widely available that 
provide performance decent enough for native use these days (yes, I did 
make serious use of an R3k DECstation natively once -- waiting for a GCC 
bootstrap to complete after the expected four weeks of computing time only 
to see it choke on a Makefile typo three weeks into was all but fun).
