As far as I know the R3000 should work with recent kernels
but at snail speed.
I don't know if this is also valid for your embedded system.

Forget about that ;) .
Gcc 2.95.2 never worked and will never work on MIPS.
Also binutils 2.9.1 are still broken. Both, gcc and
binutils are under heavy development and you _may_ be
able to use the cvs versions of these.
With other words: I would use binutils-2.8.1 with MIPS patches
and egcs-1.0.3a with MIPS patches.
