If it's about using Gentoo on your O2, you could look for any Linux
distribution to give you a solid ground and then use gentoo-prefix in
your daily activities. That would even work if you had IRIX on the box,
but is most likely equally experimental as having Gentoo on it.

What might help: Using gentoo-embedded one could emerge a cross
compilation toolchain on a decent compilation machine of any
architecture (sys-devel/crossdev). Then you export that compiler using
sys-devel/distcc and make it available on your slow Gentoo/MIPS box.

Dirk.
