 FYI, I've been able to build glibc 2.3.5 with GCC 4.0.0 for 
mips64el-linux (n64) with minimal patching.  I think what's only really 
required is that patch by Richard Sandiford that stays suspended in the 
glibc Bugzilla.

 For o32 glibc may have to be configured for "mips{,el}-linux" (as o32 
isn't MIPS64 at all), but that's a pure guess -- I haven't checked the 
scripts for that requirement.

 Do you think HEAD is stable enough for a non-glibc developer?  It's soon 
after a fork after all, so I'd expect more serious changes to be applied 
nowadays.
