How about talking to Algorithmics (firstname.lastname@example.org). They have a
functioning MIPS toolchain, called SDE-MIPS, based on GNU. I saw Alan
Cox mention on linux.dev.kernel what he (they?) use Algorithmics'
toolchain, because they work, and FSF's doesn't. Algortihmics have
feed their changes back to FSF, but we all know how they work :-(
If you contact them, give a hello from me :-)
