OK, now I tried it too.  I see.

Here's a question about compile flags.  I'd like to port a little program
called cftp, which is a very convenient ftp client for Linux.  I tried
to get it working with ./configure && make && make install, and it 
compiles, but doesn't quite work right, asking me for passwords to 
anonymous sites, even though they are in the .cftprc file.  Should 
I add the "-mcpu=r3000 -mips1" flags to the makefile, or is something
else likely necessary to get it to work on the DECstations.  I guess
the general question I'm asking is: what has to be done to port a 
program from Intel Redhat Linux 5.1 to mipsel Redhat?
