Whats the status of the MIPS port ?

I am currently working on a project called "OpenTik", wich aims at
replacing mikrotik's routeros with a completely opensource

Originally i wanted to use FreeBSD on ARM but theres no freepascal
compiler for this.

I switched to a Linux based system as the base, and freepascal to
write a couple of complex components (like the console wich is way
more powerfull than the mikrotik's original one).

I am working on the captive portal system now, wich will be nicely
integrated into the current (working already) xmlconsole.

Later i plan to write a mac server using freepascal and libpcap and
finally a winbox replacement called openbox.

Current source code is here :


it implements a complete programming language on its own, besides a
template system and a configuration management tool all integrated
into a single system called xmlconsole (because it uses xml files to
store config).

My question is : Whats the status of Freepascal on the MIPS (both LE and BE) ?

I ask this bacause MIPS is the single most used processor in the low
end/low cost access point market and it would be quite nicey to have
opentik running on those.
