Great. Thanks :)

I plan to build mips32 stages, but I don't really know much about this
type of hardware. As you guessed, I'm more interested in 64-bit
systems.

Are there big-endian mips32 systems worth supporting? My little-endian
userland seems to be dead and I've been building these big endian
stages, so I haven't had time to revive it yet.

If you would, please join the #gentoo-mips IRC channel. :)

Matt
