What kind of MIPS, and on what OS?

We developed an interpreter-only Linux MIPS64 port of OpenJDK
(http://java.reservoir.com/).  It runs Java code fine, though not yet
quickly.  Beyond a compiler, there are other tweaks that should be
made, like more use of GOTs, etc.

There is also IcedTea (http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/IcedTea),
which has a "zero assembler" patch that allows a C-interpreter
configuration of OpenJDK to be built on other architectures with
little/no extra work.
