The basic compiler works and some of the RTL compiles, but the tweaks 
necessary are highly tentative since I don't fully understand e.g. the 
subtleties of some of the CG defines and are only described at 
http://wiki.lazarus.freepascal.org/Native_MIPS_Systems since I've not 
asked anybody to commit the changes.

I've worked through some of the stuff but have stalled at the assembler 
reader, which forced me off onto an exercise of reading up on the MIPS 
ABI etc. whence I never really returned.
