Native rpms, no. Native tarballs that "work," yes. I do have cross
tools (again, not RPMs) for sparc glibc 2.1 - it's my main devel
environment. I also have a script that builds an entire cross
toolchain and kernel for any versions of gcc/binutils/glibc/kernel
that you supply, and it's tested mainly on sparc glibc 2.1. I have not
yet had any problems building such a cross toolchain, with a mainly
stock RH6.2 system (make has to be upgraded to build recent
glibc). Information on how I'm doing this is at
http://foobazco.org/~wesolows/mips-cross.html. I recommend using the
make-cross tools, however, located at
ftp://oss.sgi.com/pub/linux/mips/mips-linux/simple/crossdev/. HTH.
