Speaking for Algorithmics: I suspect there may be problems building a
2.4+ kernel with SDE-MIPS v4.0c.  The people who made 2.4 were very
enthusiastic about the latest and greatest language extensions in GCC,
and SDE-MIPS v4.0c is based on quite an old compiler.

2.2 should be fine with SDE-MIPS v4.0c; 2.4+ is known to work with
SDE-MIPS v5.0, which is only in beta so far.  With some makefile
tweaks that should build kernels with no trouble.

Soon there should be a compiler distribution from Algorithmics which
is based on the v5.0 sources, but configured for Linux.  That should
be best.
