Thanks a lot! This should help me build mips32 little endian stages now. Is floating point emulation handled by the kernel, or do glibc and gcc have to be compiled to support it? I tried building mips32-softfloat stages before, but ran into library incompatibilities. I can't see any value at all in providing mips32 hardfloat stages if the userland is different. Thanks, Matt
