 Well, the real solution would be to update the specs for gcc 2.96 --
s/-mcpu/-mtune/ should suffice.

 I'm actually surprised why the change happened at all -- the i386 uses
"-mcpu" and "-march"; why does MIPS have to use "-mtune" and "-march"
instead?  And why can't it keep "-mcpu" as an alias if "-mtune" is needed
for some reason?  It doesn't cost much.
