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:

  binutils-mips-linux-2.8.1-1.i386.rpm
  egcs-c++-mips-linux-1.0.3a-1.i386.rpm
  egcs-g77-mips-linux-1.0.3a-1.i386.rpm
  egcs-libstdc++-mips-linux-2.8.0-1.i386.rpm
  egcs-mips-linux-1.0.3a-1.i386.rpm
  egcs-objc-mips-linux-1.0.3a-1.i386.rpm

   And this is the list of packages for little endian targets:
  binutils-mipsel-linux-2.8.1-1.i386.rpm
  egcs-c++-mipsel-linux-1.0.3a-1.i386.rpm
  egcs-g77-mipsel-linux-1.0.3a-1.i386.rpm
  egcs-libstdc++-mipsel-linux-2.8.0-1.i386.rpm
  egcs-mipsel-linux-1.0.3a-1.i386.rpm
  egcs-objc-mipsel-linux-1.0.3a-1.i386.rpm

   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
   when upgrading.

This HOWTO is available at http://oss.sgi.com/mips/mips-howto.html and als
covers how to get the kernel source from cvs.
