Right, if gcc is actually used. But as you see below, you're actually
invoking the MIPSPro compiler.

That's not config.log -- that's the work log. config.log is in the
extracted work dir, where the configure script itself is in. But either
way, this log also tells you exactly what command is invoked:

/usr/bin/cc is quite unlikely to be gcc, and much more likely to be the
MIPSPro compiler. As such, it will not accept the '-mabi=3Dn32' flag,
since that's a GCC flag.

You should be able to use gcc by setting
in /etc/mk.conf explicitly.
The confusion here comes from the fact that PKGSRC_COMPILER is not set
at all, so gcc is assumed, but at the same time the proper path is not
set and 'cc' is found to be /usr/bin/cc, which is the MIPSPro compiler.
P.S.: Let's move this discussion to tech-pkg@, please.
