# It is likely it will fail on __ctype_touplow_t*, this is quite easy to fix.
# http://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=14939
# I went with the #ifdef changes of ../gcc-4.0.4/libstdc++-v3/config/locale/generic/c_locale.h
# and ../gcc-4.0.4/libstdc++-v3/config/os/gnu-linux/ctype_base.h

Unfortunately this will use libc dynamic linker, which is incorrect. So at the moment, use the following line to compile your executables.

# gcc -Wl,--dynamic-linker,/lib/ld-uClibc.so.0 -o hello hello.c

I will attempt to find out how to make it use the correct dynamic linker by default.

Thanks to emveepee we now know one way to fix this, although the source line mentioned only sets it to libc if it is otherwise not specified. So there should be a proper way to specify with linker we want. If someone has time to research this, that would be appreciated. For now:

1. To get around the need to specify the dynamic-linker I found you could be able to modify the default 
dynamic-linker in gcc-4.0.4/gcc/config/mips/linux.h

I just modified line 118 to the proper setting rather than applying the patch discussed in the following
url and the problem goes away.

http://www.busybox.net/lists/uclibc/2004-January/007943.html

2. The soft floating-point functions will not be linked in by default without a patch
http://bugs.busybox.net/view.php?id=1069 which I haven't tried yet but linking in -lgcc_s also
solves the problem.

If you use the package, you need to specify that you wish to build little-endian. This is done with the "-EL" flag. You'd have to give it to gcc, g++, ld etc using CFLAGS=-EL, LDFLAGS=-EL etc. Another option is to make little wrapper files to pass the flag automatically, like:

-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root      65 Oct 15  2009 mipsel-linux-gnu-cpp
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root      65 Oct 15  2009 mipsel-linux-gnu-g++
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root      65 Oct 15  2009 mipsel-linux-gnu-gcc
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root      65 Oct 15  2009 mipsel-linux-gnu-gcc-4.3.3

-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root  202404 Apr 13  2009 mips-linux-gnu-cpp
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root  203588 Apr 13  2009 mips-linux-gnu-g++
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root  201188 Apr 13  2009 mips-linux-gnu-gcc
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root  201188 Apr 13  2009 mips-linux-gnu-gcc-4.3.3
# cat /usr/local/mips-4.3/bin/mipsel-linux-gnu-gcc
#!/bin/sh
exe=`echo $0 | sed s/mipsel/mips/g`
exec $exe -EL "$@"

Possibly, this bash script will work:

cd /usr/local/mips-4.3/bin
for i in mipsel-linux-gnu-addr2line mipsel-linux-gnu-ar mipsel-linux-gnu-as mipsel-linux-gnu-c++ mipsel-linux-gnu-c++filt mipsel-linux-gnu-cpp mipsel-linux-gnu-g++ mipsel-linux-gnu-gcc mipsel-linux-gnu-gcc-4.3.3 mipsel-linux-gnu-gcov mipsel-linux-gnu-gdb mipsel-linux-gnu-gdbtui mipsel-linux-gnu-gprof mipsel-linux-gnu-ld mipsel-linux-gnu-nm mipsel-linux-gnu-objcopy mipsel-linux-gnu-objdump mipsel-linux-gnu-ranlib mipsel-linux-gnu-readelf mipsel-linux-gnu-size mipsel-linux-gnu-strings mipsel-linux-gnu-strip
do
cat <<EOF > $i
#!/bin/sh
exe=\`echo \$0 | sed s/mipsel/mips/g\`
exec \$exe -EL "\$@"
EOF
chmod 755 $i
done


Then when you are compiling things in future, you can go:

./configure --host=mipsel-linux-gnu
