I'm not sure which component the dynamic linker goes with.
In any case, this was discussed at length in Debian, terminating in the
message http://lists.debian.org/debian-mips/2005/10/msg00031.html by

In the spirit of actually reporting bugs, rather than keeping them known only
to a secret cabal, I'm reporting this.
The only current known testcase is libgcj from GCC. It's probably possible to
artificially construct MultiGOT binaries with >16K of global symbols, however.
For the trunk, mips has moved to the ports repository.
Daniel should be able to commit his fixes there directly.
Items needing merge in the 2.3 branch can be reassigned to me.
Thiemo, is the conclusion that this was the same as the ld bug David Daney just
Not a glibc bug, then. I'll follow the binutils bug.
