You don't need a special 'cross-compiler' glibc in order to set up a
cross-build environment for MIPS; simply grab a glibc package that's
precompiled for MIPS and install it into your cross-build root directory.
I don't know who (if anyone) would have rpms for a recent mips glibc; I use
Debian, where I have the packages available as part of the distro.
