Ummm... I noticed that one significant difference when compiling
the DEC kernel with 2.6.2 is that all intermediate binaries (.o's) 
generated by as are in ELF format according to file... that and 
the resultant vmlinux when linked is:

        mipsel executable not stripped

rather than the:

        mipsel executable - version 2.11

I'll keep checking a few things...
