Dynamic linking is indeed broken. Haven't tracked down why yet.
(hello-dynamic works on i686, segfaults on mips.)

Static building seems to work reasonably well though. No sparc support,
but I only ever got 32 bits working there anyway. (Less sad about the
lack of m68k support since there _still_ wasn't a working qemu for that
last I checked.)

Which libgcc.a issue? I hit a couple different ones, but I think they're
fixed now?

Thanks. Sorry it took so long but it's _fiddly_ getting a new toolchain
to work. And I'm sure something else is still lurking somewhere...
