That's a first.  A message forums that watches our list and doubles as an 
interface to it.

Anyways, your answer is, unfortunately, no.  I've discovered the usefulness of 
ltrace many a time on x86, but ltrace is one of those unique programs that needs 
some porting before it can run on a new architecture.  There's documentation 
within the ltrace source explaining what information it needs to properly run on 
a new architecture, but I've discovered that this documentation is not very 
clear on how to properly obtain the information and put it to use within ltrace.

As such, ltrace will have to simply sit in the dust bin of time until someone 
with the skill gets an inclination to port it to mips (and sparc, which could 
also use it).
