I'm really confused by mips targets, such as mips-elf, mips-linux,

tell me the difference between them.
The last two don't exist.
Except I think they may be accepted as synonyms for mips-linux and
mips-linux-gnu, as the second part of the 'triplet' is often either
omitted or ignored. I, of course, have verified none of this.
The first one is to target an elf-based embedded system. The second is
for a mips-linux (mips-linux-gnu) box.
