I'm not aware of one I could share with you, although I think/recall
that people were introducing such make targets on specific occasions.

"make generic" should just work, yes.  Please try it and report back.

In fact, we'd probably have to add four separate Linux/MIPS make
targets: for big- vs. little-endian and for 32- vs. 64-bit:

http://www.linux-mips.org/wiki/Endianess says:
"On 64-bit the big vs. little endian ratio is rather very large in
favor of big endianess.
On 32-bit kernels there seems to be somewhat a majority of big endian
systems. Distribution download figures suggset approximately a 60:40
ratio."
