Thanks again for your very quick response.

I'm sorry but I'm not too sure what my options are. I think it is partly my
inexperience with Linux so I apologise. I'd like to use libcurl for my
application and I appear to have everything I need to do so but I'm unclear
on whether I can set 'configure' correctly to cross compile to get it

I have noticed that I do have a sub-directory called
'mipsel-hardhat-linux/bin' which contains link files to the relevant
'mips_fp_le' files e.g gcc to mips_fp_le-gcc. Can I use 'configure' to work
from this directory but unltimately use the respective 'mips_fp_le' files to
cross compile correctly?

I believe this is because your prefix "mips_fp_le" is fairly non-standard,
and config.sub uses that to guesstimate what operating system and target cpu
etc that are used.

The name of the target system/compiler is rather expected to be something
like "mips-elf-gcc", "mips-elf-linux-gcc" or even "mips-linux-gcc" etc.
