I believe this patch:

2001-08-31  Eric Christopher  <>
            Jason Eckhardt  <>

        * bfd/archures.c: Add mipsisa32 and mipsisa64. Remove mips32,
        mips32_4k and mips64.
        * bfd/aoutx.h: Remove bfd_mach_mips32, bfd_mach_mips32_4k,
        bfd_mach_mips64.  Add bfd_mach_mipsisa32, bfd_mach_mipsisa64.
        * bfd/cpu-mips.c: Ditto.

breaks the mips objdump. May I ask why we changed an existing command
line option? The old scripts like the one in the gas testsuite won't
work anymore.
