Type 18 is R_MIPS_64.  modutils does not support 64 bit mips
at all, nobody has sent me any code to handle this architecture.

modutils needs obj/obj_mips64.c.  The config and makefiles have to be
tweaked to handle mips64, including combined 32/64 bit code, as for
sparc32/sparc64.  Does anybody who knows mips64 feel like contributing
the modutils code?
