If you install an SGI binary on a 32-bit mipsel and it doesn't work,
then I think you deserve what you get :).
If it's a mipseb binary on a mips3, then we can make it work. [ca
very large SMOP to handle all the untyped interfaces like ioctls.

Please read what I said about Makefiles and walking arch/mips subdirs
and arch-specific set files. I'm not being thick. If it breaks those,
i'll back it out till its fixed.
