Basic operation OK. There's a slight problem in that the build produces 
a directory /usr/local/lib/fpc/2.7.1/units/mips-linux while ppcmips 
running with the standard fpc.cfg expects .../mipseb-linux

Full build works with a standard set of parameters. Albeit slowly. Only 
peculiarity was that I had to copy the fpc binary manually  before I 
could run  sudo make install

I'll try to run the test suite for both mipsel and mips(eb), but a 
higher priority has to be getting one of my SGI machines running.
