Well, actually MIPS is a 64-bit architecture, or to
be more precise, it has 64-bit as well as 32-bit
incarnations.  Fortunately, 32-bit MIPS code
runs just fine on 64-bit MIPS CPUs - indeed,
all of the Kaffe work that I've been doing has
been 32-bit code on 64-bit MIPS CPUs.
I mention this only to warn people not to assume
that __mips__ being true does necessarily mean 
that one is targeting a 32-bit CPU.
