Building a GCC cross-compiler is actually pretty straigthforward.  Just google 'gcc cross-compiler'.  There's already a MIPS code generator for GCC so it shouldn't be too bad.

Some current MIPS hardware would too. I've got a couple,
both MIPS32 and MIPS64 (the latest MIPS ISAs) which I
hope to make Haiku run on eventually.

Is it correct to assume that making an appropriate cross-
compiler (for this new Haiku/MIPSxx) is the right way to
start?

I'm intimidated by the apparent size and complexity of GCC.
Any hints on how to approach this?
