Thanks for everyone's input!
Looks like I should upgrade glibc, and possibly gcc. When you say that I
should try CVS HEAD of glibc, I'm not sure what you mean. I have looked in
the linux-mips.org CVS and the closest thing I can find is libc, and it
looks really old. I have also found a glibc CVS at
:pserver:email@example.com:/cvs/glibc. If I get libc from here is
this the "CVS HEAD"?
Should I get GCC from the generic GCC site, or should get it from the
I apologize for the simple questions. I have not built a tool chain before.
I've been using the one supplied by PMC-Sierra. Will I need to patch any of
these sources for MIPs?

I don't think glibc 2.3.5 worked for mips64. But I haven't checked it
in a long time. Try CVS HEAD of glibc instead.
Other than that, you're on your own - building glibc is extremely error
