Hm.  Looks like you are not using the same assembler that the other
people who have built on MIPS machines use.  Try looking at the output
of "gcc -S" on some program to see what syntax it's emitting.  If you're
lucky it'll just be some trivial difference like ".global" vs ".globl".
If the differences are too extensive to figure out, you'll probably
need to reconfigure your gcc setup: either start using gas (GNU as)
for the assembly step, or stop using it and use the vendor's as,
whichever you're not doing now.

What is the OS platform involved here, anyway?
