[ The build matrix: http://kegel.com/crosstool/current/buildlogs/ ]

There are quite a few combinations that build for 32-bit mips with crosstool, 
e.g.
 mips-gcc-3.2.3-glibc-2.2.5
 mips-gcc-3.2.3-glibc-2.3.2
 mips-gcc-3.3.6-glibc-2.2.5
 mips-gcc-3.3.6-glibc-2.3.5
 mips-gcc-3.4.4-glibc-2.3.2-hdrs-2.6.11.2
 mips-gcc-3.4.4-glibc-2.3.5-hdrs-2.6.11.2
 mips-gcc-4.1-20050702-glibc-2.3.2-hdrs-2.6.11.2
 mips-gcc-4.1-20050709-glibc-2.3.2-hdrs-2.6.11.2
so the situation isn't that dire.

For the record, I would be more than happy to add mips64 support to crosstool.
http://www.linux-mips.org/archives/linux-mips/2005-07/msg00189.html
http://documents.jg555.com/cross-lfs/mips64-64/cross-tools/glibc.html
http://documents.jg555.com/cross-lfs/mips64-64/cross-tools/gcc-final.html
mentions some patches that might be needed.
I haven't had time to chase them down and add them to crosstool,
but if anybody else felt like it, I'd gladly accept the patches.
I'm sure a lot of mips64 users would be very happy.
