If you have some spare mips machines and want to help, you can check
out the gcc main trunk from CVS:

http://gcc.gnu.org/

You can build/check it and send in the test result. It has to be done
continuously since any checkin can break gcc on Linux/mips. You can
also check out glibc from CVS:

http://sources.redhat.com

and build/check it. The failed glibc tests should be sent to the glibc
mailing list.
