One thing you could try is to build a linux/mips file system image
(say debian which support mips) and run it with quemu on your PC.

  http://fabrice.bellard.free.fr/qemu/
  http://www.debian.org/ports/mips/

  MIPS R4K target Emulation
  Operating System                State   Tested QEMU version
  GNU/Linux 2.6.14 Debian         OK      0.8.0 

I've used a similar technique to cross build stuff for ARM.  I found
the debian ARM python quite sufficient for my needs so I didn't have
to build that!
