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

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