I ended up putting "-mips4" as a GCC option into and at least  
as of right now the build is still progressing happily (takes forever  
though :-). Not sure whether it will actually *work* once it's done  
building of course, but at least I now have a chance to try it out.  
Any comments/advice anyone might still have about this whole MIPS I  
vs. MIPS 4 issue for NetBSD/cobalt would be very much appreciated. :-)
