Summary0004359: Linux MIPS(EL) build error
DescriptionI have been trying to build OCaml on Linux running on little-endian MIPS (Loongson 2E) but I haven't been successful so far. It errors out on both "make world.opt" and "make world".
Additional InformationThe only message I get is that the file "" in the tools directory contains illegal characters. The contents of that line are the name of the assembler (as), which I do have on my system since it is a straight recompile of Slackware 12.0 x86.

This probably has to do with the fact that OCaml has only been tested and has a optimised backend for IRIX running on big-endian MIPS, so adding support for both little-endian and big-endian Linux would be the thing to do.
TagsNo tags attached.

The MIPS port of OCaml is no longer supported (we have no longer access to a MIPS platform), and has only been tested under IRIX. We will not port to other MIPS platforms.
