Cool! we've been working on cross-compiling toolchains for mips64el, so
far only some of us (me and?) use a cross-toolchain to build packages,
using distcc from a native host. this process is explained on our

we also created a set of PKGBUILDs[2] aimed at cross-toolchains. this
set initially built for gcc 4.6 but the update to 4.7 introduced a lot
of build errors we couldn't debug yet.
