I'm not sure if it is the right group...

Well, I have some thihrd party binaries that I have to link against but
I got errors that they uses different e_flags fields that previous
modules. I am compiling for mips32 machine. How is it possible to alter
the e_flags value? Is it possible by some switches? If so, then which
one? Or maybe it is needed to alter some files (i.e.: in compiler...?)
In what way the e_flags value is set?
Can anyone suggest also any article in this matter in the web?

Thank you in advance for any help
