We like to have consistent tests regardless of host (as well as the tests
that use the native-built binaries). So what I was suggesting was a new
test with precise stored binaries.

Well, we don't actually have a mips backend, so various problems are to be
expected until that porting work gets done. That particular one is due to
the SHT_PROGBITS check in readelf.c:print_debug. Since SHT_MIPS_DWARF is
in the SHT_LOPROC..SHT_HIPROC range, it wouldn't be proper to match it
generically, so we really do need to add an ebl hook for this and then
write a mips backend that defines it.
