System: NetBSD 2.99.11 (INST_NFS) #0: Sun Dec 12 17:08:19 MET 2004 kilbi@qie:/sys/arch/cobalt/compile/INST_NFS
Architecture: mipsel
Machine: cobalt
	After recent import of binutils 2.15 the cross compilation
	'i386 -> cobalt' of whole userland and kernel succeeds now,
	but the produced dynamically linked binaries (for
	cobalt/mipsel) do not work at all (dump core with memory
	fault, or 'Process (pid 1) got signal 11' in init's case))!
	Statically linked binaries (/rescue/* and the kernel itself)
	seem to run fine.
	(Cross) compile complete userland and kernel for a cobalt qube
	2 with recently imported binutils 2.15, try to run it on such
	a machine (what about other mpse{l,b} machines?) and see how
	all dynamically linked binaries fail.
