Someone else reported this before; it's a problem cause by the change
in exec_elf32.c from version 1.19 -> 1.20. Apparently mips ELF
interpreters for dynamically linked binaries have their entry point
set in a different way. I put an ifdef mips around it for now,
to help -current users who want to run Linux ELF binaries. It should
be fixed properly sometime.
