Hi *,

I just build the current 23 head on an old SGI Indy (mips r4400) running
NetBSD 5.0:

To make it configure and build I had to fiddle with configure as it
currently does not handle NetBSD on mips and so the machine does not get

I suggest a patch along the lines of:

This is untested, as I actually manipulates the generated configure
script, and I'm not sure which exact targets are possible with netbsd
(IIRC it issued mipseb in my case, can't verify it at the moment).

Anyway, after hot-fixing configure it build and ran like a charm, so I
think once this is fixed we could add it to etc/MACHINES.
