There's a patch in the contrib directory that adds uclibc support
to crosstool-0.28-rc5.  It was posted by Carl Miller on 20 April 2004.
   tar -xzvf crosstool-0.28-rc5.tar.gz
   cd crosstool-0.28-rc5
   patch -p1 < ../crosstool-uclibc-0.28-rc5.patch
   eval `cat gcc-3.3.3-uclibc-0.9.23.dat mipsel.dat`

I think Carl only tested it with arm, though, so who knows if that'll work...
