Subject: [Caml-list] ocaml vs. NetBSD/R3K
I recently tried bootstrapping the native code on a DecStation running
NetBSD. I don't believe there should be too many hangups, but mips.s
appears not to suffice for this target.

The float register stuff shouldn't be too tough to produce hackish
workarounds for, but I'm not sure what .cpsetup and .cpreturn are
supposed to accomplish.

Any other expected hangups?

P.S.: Here are the error messages:

gcc -c -DSYS_netbsd -o mips.o mips.s
