The ldscripts directory that you mention is a part of the bintuils ebuild. 
Not sure why your other tools are having problems.  Here's the present 
levels of all my relevant stuff:


As I look at it, it appears that only gcc-4.1.1 and kgcc64-4.1.1 are new. 
The others all came from the mips4 stage3 tarball when I installed the 
system a few weeks ago.

When I call mips64-unknown-linux-gnu-gcc with the -v flag, it is clearly 
the 3.4.6 compiler.  So the 4.1.1 versions would appear somewhat 
irrelevant at the moment.  I built the kernel I'm running on now, and by 
appearances, it must have been the kgcc/gcc 3.4.6 that was used.  It seems 
the only way I can call the 4.1.1 compiler is by using an explicit path 
down into it's tree.
