[fpc-devel] how to produce object codes that do not reference symbolic registers

I am trying to create a cross compiler from x86 Debian-Linus -> mips-eb 
(endian big) Linux (OpenWrt).
The target platform is a netgear 3700 router.

I downloaded the toolchain for openwrt mips-eb and try to make the cross 
when I run
make all CPU_TARGET=mips OS_TARGET=linux 

there were errors:
/home/dennis/toolchains/staging_dir_mips/bin/mips-linux-as -32 -mips32 
-EB -o /home/dennis/fpc/2.7.1/rtl/units/mips-linux/prt0.o mips/prt0.as
mips/prt0.as: Assembler messages:
mips/prt0.as:23: Error: illegal operands `lui $a2,%hi(__dl_fini)'

looks like the mips-linux-as  assembler cannot understand the symbolic 
register $a2.

May be the assembler version is too old (late 2009) but I cannot find a 
newer assembler so I am wondering if I can make the fpc compiler product 
object files that DO NOT REFERENCE symbolic registers.

If you know of any options parameters that I can pass to fpc to achieve 
that, please kindly let me know.

Thanks a lot.
