Looks like the new GNU libc stuff needs a newer kernel. Do you have any plans
to roll to a later one in the near future?

I've uploaded the first shared library binaries for Linux/MIPS to ftp.fnet.fr
where they'll appear in /linux-mips/ as soon as someone has moved them online.
The binaries are based on GNU libc snapshot 960619.
In order to use these libraries you also have to:
- Run Linux/MIPS kernel version 2.0.1 or newer. I'll upload this one rsn.
- Install new binutils and GCC. These are yet unreleased; I'll release the
patches rsn. This is necessary even if you link your programs static only
because on MIPS even the static archives contain PIC code which the current
binutils can't handle.
The dynamic linker clearly still has alpha status; expect to see all sorts of
bugs. The little endian binaries are those that I use on my system. I
provide the big endian binaries untested and in the hope that they'll be
