It seems obvious that your tools and or compiler options are broken
Where is this "-mips2 -EL" stuff coming from? You don't find this in

This depends on your definition of "reasonable" ;-)

Obviously this is a tool problem first. I guess you will need to fix
this anyway, or you will run into the same problems later when you
want to compile your OS kernel and/or applications.

If programming was easy, they wouldn't need something as complicated
as a human being to do it, now would they?
