The code runs for the MIPSEL and is just a def in the make process.
Yes, I need to know this, so that I can include it in Debian latter. I have already made a precompiled package (for PowerPC) on http://www.ime.usp.br/~rbrito/debian/
(and the sources are there too) of the 1.7.3 version (which is 1.7.2 with a few bugfixes and patches by me). Be warned that:
- It follows the Debian Policy strictly.
- It doesn't support the melco things in that build.
BTW, lb_worm, so that I can make public releases and announce things on the project (as well as other things), please put me as an admin of the project, instead of a developer.
The next Debian packages will include the melco things. I'm thinking of doing that in a run-time way (I particularly don't use them, so the package is fine with me, but others may like to use the melco things).
(And include support for mipsel, but I have no box here to compile it).
I am currently addressing some issues with the 1.8.x drop and this will be posted soon.
Please, don't waste much time addressing such things. Put the code under revision control (or let me know and I will put it). This way, everything that you develop will have a history tracked by Subversion.
lb_worm: the original build process needs to be completely redesigned. I can take care of that, but I don't want to reinvent the wheel, since I don't know in what you are working now.
