Recently, on a MIPS box a couple of ms away ...

How about joining the RC5-64 effort as "Team MIPS"? I'll build binary
packages and will make them available via the usual ftp sites (ftp.fnet.fr,
ftp.linux.sgi.com) as well as via www.distributed.net.
I didn't take myself the time for comparing the benchmarks with other
machine but I think the numbers leave whishes about higher performance
Btw, the RC5 client for MIPS was delayed alot by the recently reported
libg++ showstopper bug. I haven't fixed the problem yet for real but
once again it smells like a dynamic linker bug. I was able to work
around by a static (yuck) executable.
Ok, and now it's up to you people to burn your cycles.
