The machine I use (and many of us, too) has a MIPS-like chip, the

I don't think portability has anything to do with age or family of the processor, but more with the operating system. Ancient RISC boxes were running only very small parts of the GNU userspace. Instead, modern ARM/MIPS/SPARC/PowerPC machines are often GNU/Linux or Busybox/Linux (and if the latter, they are cross-compiled with a GNU toolchain).
