As far as I can tell mips and mips64 are not supported by Ogre3D. My builds for those ABI's fail anyway.

Are they supposed to be supported? If not, will they ever be supported? If not, why?

I think only a few tablets got manufactured with mips not aware of any phones. So it's a case of would the effort be worth it other than ticking a box in processor support?

Personally i'd love a bit more diversity in the phone/tablet market with cpus.

search the source code for OGRE_PLATFORM_ANDROID and add OGRE_CPU_MIPS paths where applicable.

then create a pull-request with your changes. ;)
