We like to have consistent tests regardless of host (as well as the tests
that use the native-built binaries). So what I was suggesting was a new
test with precise stored binaries.
I can provide you binaries for all arches in Debian if you want,
if you tell me which source to build, and how you want it build.

Well, we don't actually have a mips backend, so various problems are to be
expected until that porting work gets done. That particular one is due to
the SHT_PROGBITS check in readelf.c:print_debug. Since SHT_MIPS_DWARF is
in the SHT_LOPROC..SHT_HIPROC range, it wouldn't be proper to match it
generically, so we really do need to add an ebl hook for this and then
write a mips backend that defines it.
I have a mips backend already. I have various backends you don't
have and I've tried a few times to get some of them applied without
So if you provide a hook for it, I'm more than happy to implement
it on mips.
