I also put up packages which I use on my Qube2. List is available here :
Make sure to read READ_ME.TXT
They're all compiled with:
-march=mips3 -mtune=r5k -mabi=32 -O2 -fforce-addr
except for those dated 25-Apr-2006 and older, which didn't have
-march=mips3 in the flags. I did some testing with digest, and this flag
greatly sped up verifying checksums and such. I tried with -march=r5k
and -march=mips4 and it makes broken executables. mips3 works fine and
speeds up some tasks..
I keep my pkgsrc up to date (sync once a week or so), and make new
binary packages available once they're compiled.
