I'm not sure about mipseb, but I've used both crosstool and buildroot
to build toolchains to compile a mipsel 2.6.10 kernel for the
DBAu1550. The kernel is the linux-mips cvs head from a few weeks ago.
Right now I'm using gcc 3.4.3 and binutils 2.15.94.0.2 20041220 that
was built with a recent buildroot checkout.

When I first tried to compile the 2.6.10 I was using
crosstool-0.28-rc37 and I ran into some binutils issues. I ended up
using gcc-3.4.1-glibc-2.3.2 with binutils-050110 (I'm not sure where I
got that). When I switched to buildroot I was able to use the latest
tools it had support for.
