I'm not sure, but AFAIK gas is a little bit limitted on MIPS. I think I read some gcc documentation that you should not use gas on MIPS because gas don't work very well on this architecture. This is especially true at least for newer Irix (6.x) releases I think. But I don't know if I'm right. Hopefully the whole thread with gas on Irix has changed the last 1.5 years.
