Thanks for taking the time to do it.

It fails here with something related to stdc++. With adding a
--enable-language=c it works. So the configure line I used is:
../gcc-4.4.4/configure --target=mips64-unknown-linux-gnu
--prefix=/var/samba/mips --disable-threads --disable-shared
--disable-multilib --disable-libgcc --disable-libmudflap --disable-libssp
--disable-libgomp --enable-languages=c

It helped me a lot, thank you. The kernel compiles fine. 
The kernel is very huge: 39MBytes (!).
After a mips64-unknown-linux-gnu-strip, it downsized to 3.3MBytes.
But that kernel doesn't boot.

The system in the board I have uses in U-boot:
ext2load ide 0 4000000 vmlinux
bootoctlinux 4000000 (other args..)

But when I replace the vmlinux file with mine called 'mips', it says:
RSEC-K1# ext2load ide 0 4000000 mips

3362840 bytes read

I tried a lot of different numbers like 2000000 or greater, depending of
what I find in mailing lists, but I don't find the right value. Is there a
way to compute it, or it's kernel I made that is not right?
