Ok - i tried around a lot and i must say DONT USE THE NEWEST VERSIONS.

Mostly the newest version do have LOADS of bugs i seem not be able to
fix or even see - You just see a non working kernel.

I had luck getting "egcs 1.02 + mips patch" to work and
gcc 2.7.2 + cross patch + mips patch and binutils 2.8.1 + mips patch
+ the one liner noted on one of the web sites for building a netbooting
ecoff binary ...
