Well, for one thing, you're right - you will need to add solib-svr4.o.

For the next thing, you're right again.  SOLIB_ADD is defined based on
the included header.  What needs to happen is probably that it needs to
be somehow multi-arched, or at least multi-arch aware.  Andrew?

Do you have a link map structure?  Note that that doesn't seem to be
multiarched either :(  Search for svr4 in mips-linux-tdep.c and in
