Caused by the deprecation of mips 1, 2, 3 and 4. The toolchain used was
built for mips4, so when linked against code for mips32, it doesn't
work (because apparently, mips32 code isn't compatible with mips4 code).

So I've started rebuilding the set of toolchains on top of 2013.11-rc2,
by replacing the mips4 toolchain by a mips32 toolchain.
