Thanks for the reply. What I need is to assume any OS at this point,
and to compile for the mips r4000. At a layer stage, I might
write/customize an OS. Now I just need to compile GCC to generate
assembly code for the mips r4000, assuming that I have this or that OS
(specifying an OS at this point isn't really essential for me).
Thanks for the help.
