 What problem are you trying to solve?  Can you run `readelf -S' on a MIPS 
executable you think you have a trouble with and post the result?

 NB MIPS shared libraries use the so called lazy binding stubs, where the 
call is always indirect, rather than a procedure linkage table to achieve 
a similar effect, so you won't ever see a PLT in a MIPS shared library.
