Cross compiling GNU libc is IMHO overkill. You may use the same binaries as
you use natively. Cross compiling GNU libc is doomed to fail. The source
rpms the mips-howto refers to are generated from /dev/random. Download the
MIPS rpm of the GNU libc, and convert it to another format (using rpm2cpio or
alien) and extract the files from it. Finally copy it to your /usr/mips-linux
or /usr/local/mips-linux (as described in the mips-howto).
