 Yes, though it has to be extracted from bfd/config.bfd and coded in TCL 
somewhere.  In commit 86b24e15c45b ("MIPS/LD/testsuite: Correct 
comm-data.exp test ABI/emul/endian arrangement") I did a related 
arrangement and coded the list of ABIs supported by each MIPS target in 
ld/testsuite/ld-mips-elf/comm-data.exp, but that does not indicate which 
ABI is the default.  My plan has actully been to code the defaults 
sometime as that will be required to get clean results from 
ld/testsuite/ld-mips-elf/mips-elf.exp on some MIPS targets.

 NB bfd/config.bfd (targ_defvec) and gas/ (mips_default_abi) 
provide the same information stored differently, and there actually were 
discrepancies, which I believe I have corrected by now.
