I'm using the little endian rpm from ftp.linux.sgi.com. Here is the md5sum:
Linux mips.franken.de 2.1.72 #140 Sat Jan 3 23:43:04 MET 1998 mips
[root@mips /root]# ld --version

I'm sure the binutils 2.7, I've used before, didn't have the bug. But
I wanted to make the redhat-5.0 rpms with the newer binutils.
