[fpc-pascal] why is MIPS not equivalent to MIPSEB

I was trying to build a cross compiler by following the MIPS_port doc 
but since I needed MIPS bid endian version instead, I changed their 
example of MIPSel into MIPS which seems the correct way in dowloading 
binutils and specifying TARGET CPU.

However, after many days of struggling, it appears that the correct 
spelling regarded by the crosscompiler for MIPS big endian is actually 
MIPSEB instead of MIPS!!!
And that probably produced a lot of my earlier problems.  I had to 
rename all the names of ld and as files from mips to mipseb to have the 
compiler stop complaining.

Can someone tell me why in some areas of fpc, it is MIPS and else MIPSEB?
