I'll fix it later today.

I've built glibc-2.14-6, not eglibc.  I don't know any arguments for the
migration and glibc is known to work and be used on other architectures
in Parabola.

We need to build the following packages:
1. binutils
2. gcc
3. binutils
4. glibc
5. check all packages with changed CFLAGS or LDFLAGS if they still need
   this to avoid compiler errors

I'll compile binutils.  Do you want to compile gcc?

Maybe we should also require newer kernel than 2.6.27 for glibc on
mips64el?  I don't know what would this change.
