If you're about to compile a recent kernel, you better upgrade these.

I don't know about any image for your machine, there are certainly newer
cross-compile binaries available, from the HOWTO:
10.1 Available binaries
The easist thing to setup a crosscompiler is to just download the binaries.
For Linux/i386 hosts and big endian targets this are the packages:
And this is the list of packages for little endian targets:
It's not necessary that you install all these packages; most people can just
omit the C++, Objective C and Fortran 77 compilers. The Intel binaries have
been linked against GNU libc 2.1, so you may have to install that as well
This HOWTO is available at http://oss.sgi.com/mips/mips-howto.html and als
covers how to get the kernel source from cvs.
