[Botan-devel] Building for MIPS

Hi Meenal,

I haven't had access to a MIPS machine for a couple of years, but it
has worked in the past with both GCC and SGI's compilers. And Debian
regularly does builds on MIPS with GCC, including the most recent
stable release.

In terms of configuration, you'll want to specify exactly what you're
going for to configure.pl as

  ./configure.pl <compiler>-<os>-<some mips variant such as mips64-r4400>

With the compiler and OS depending on whatever you're using as a cross
compiler and whatever OS the simulator is presenting (or use 'generic'
if it's something weird or that doesn't provide any interesting
services to applications).

If you don't know what MIPS variants your simulator supports, use
'mips32' which will try for pretty generic code.

I'd strongly recommend running the test application to make sure
nothing was miscompiled.
