Here's a little note about MIPS64 status.

BTW I already have the patch Jim mentions,
in crostool as glibc-2.3.[45]/pr758.patch.

So there you have it - glibc-2.3.5 is supposed to work for mips64.
Guess I should add it to the build matrix.

No, but I'm trying to get the basics from Daniel so I can test for him.

There is only one patch required for MIPS64 builds.

Sure no problem. I'm part of the same group as Ryan Oliver. He's the one
who mastered the build method we are using for cross-lfs. I'm the
tweaker of the group.
