There isn't (yet) support for MIPS on uClinux.


But it can't be that hard to add support for it...

Porting the kernel isn't much worse than any other architectural port. Of course that's only a part of the story, since you'll need to port the C library (uClibc/uC-glibc) and you will have to play around with the object file format to make it work with FLAT binaries... If you're serious about doing uClinux you can find a somewhat cryptic article on porting to uClinux at:
