Aha. Yes, we don't have a backend for that architecture.
It shouldn't be too hard to write a backend for it. But it needs someone
who knows about the relocation types, special symbols, DWARF register
number mappings and ptrace/pt_regs setup to fully support. Let me know
if you would like to try and need some help.

Great. I did just add two patches to SKIP these tests if the demangler
cannot be found and to print out recommended features for configure so
