Fetch the X400src-1.tgz from any xfree86 mirror near you and apply the
latest patch found at http://honk.physik.uni-konstanz.de/~agx/mipslinux/x.
Then follow the instructions in xc/INSTALL.TXT. 
I'm using a self compiled kernel from the snapshot:
ftp://ftp.linux.sgi.com/pub/linux/mips/test/linux-2.2.13-20000211.tar.bz2
since I had little luck with later versions from cvs.
Note that the xserver is currently of little use since the mouse is not
working(SIGIO problem).
