I tried renaming /usr/bin/as, and xgcc definitely was trying to invoke it,
since it came back with an error message.  /usr/local/mips-linuxelf/bin/as was
sitting right there waiting to be called, but xgcc didn't look in the right
directory.  How does xgcc decide where to look for as?  It calls 'ar' from the
makefile with an explicit path in front of it (in my case
/usr/local/mips-linuxelf/bin/ar).  'as' is called from inside xgcc, and it
appears that it is not getting the correct path.

Thanks!  I will try building mips-linux (a.out) instead of elf to see if that
makes any difference.  I also have gotten an account on a Sun SPARC system that
I learned has a cross-compiler to MIPS big-endian (used to get VxWorks code
running on our "STAR II" board).  I am going to try both paths and hopefully
one of them will begin working soon!
