Sorry for the long delay, I finally found the time to look into this problem
I have filed a bug report:
Please have a look at the attached patch.
Note that what I wrote above about the 'gcc-mips' problem isn't exactly true.
There is no auto detection of a command "g++-mips" at all. The default "g++"
is always used when no explicit command is given.
But as I thought about it, such an auto detection seemed quite usefull and
straight forward to me, so I added it in my patch.
