To elaborate on this a bit further for informational purposes, this is 
theoretically possible.  However, too many packages in portage don't 
take very well to cross-compiling yet.  A large chunk of "emerge system" 
would fail, for example.

Hmm, seriously?  I think crossdev builds a mips1 toolchain by default, 
and it works fine.  But then, that just means glibc is only optimized 
for mips1.  Either way, the machine Jason wants to run stages on here is 
MIPS32, so that would be what he really wants I think.

P.S. Any reason why openwrt isn't good enough?  If you download the 
buildroot source, it cross-compiles everything for you, including a wide 
selection of packages of your choice that are selectable from menus.  It 
works quite well, and is really the optimal sort of distro for these 
devices.  Gentoo is really intended for machines with bigger nuts.
