Well, I'm currently using:
binutils 2.10.1
gcc 2.95.3 (with Maciej's patches)
glibc 2.2.2 (compiled with above toolchain).

This toolchain works for native compiles on my mipsel box.
One drawback: I can't compile any kernels with this setup,
For kernel compiles I use 2.8.1/egcs-2.90.27/glibc-2.0.6.

I can't understand why it won't work on my Linux computer.
