Native compiles should work. AFAIK the Meshcube uses a customized
debian, most likely a testing/unstable mix. If you have a debian system
around, you can install the "debootstrap" package there and use it to
create a mips chroot, configure it, export it to the Meshcube, and
install the "build-essential" package there. This gives you the usual
native debian development environment.
