Well, mips has a new instruction set which is incompatible with the old one, that will likely cause problems. Maybe the recently contributed MIPS-R6 patch covers this, but I am not sure.

oh, now I see in INSTALL file:
. If you want to include support for just-in-time (JIT) compiling, which can
give large performance improvements on certain platforms, add --enable-jit to
the "configure" command. This support is available only for certain hardware
architectures. If you try to enable it on an unsupported architecture, there
will be a compile time error. If in doubt, use --enable-jit=auto, which
enables JIT only if the current hardware is supported.
But now I checked with --enable-jit=auto, and autotool summary
reports that JIT avaliable:
./configure --enable-jit=auto
Enable JIT compiling support ....... : yes
and compile failed again - just fyi.
anyway, is there any other limitation, what I could check?
