I followed the suggestion of Murat Kucuk and downloaded the packages from http://mcmcc.bat.ru/dlinkt/ar7_mipsel_toolchain_src/  ; I even get them compiled but of course there is not mips_fp-le-gcc binary produced but some binaries like xgcc and so ... this one will not eat the options and parameters that are supplied in the original makefile.

Build a gcc based crosscompiler (gcc-3.4.[34] for example) with the 
options similar to this (use the appropriate prefix/sysroot):

../gcc-3.4.3/configure  --target=mipsel-linux 
--with-sysroot=/usr/local/mipsel-linux-pnx8550 --with-arch=mips32 
--with-float=hard --enable-languages=c,c++ 

For me this produces code that can run on a Montavist 3.1 based system 
(where the compiler is mips_fp_le-gcc).
