Default MIPS32 little-endian Gentoo rootfs

Hello,

I've uploaded an updated version of my Gentoo installation for
little-endian softfloat MIPS32(r1)
processors (and of course newer ones).

Highlights include:
- full native toolchain. All packages have been compiled natively on
target hardware.
- based on portage snapshot from 111008
- binutils-git from 111007 to work around udev and kernel build failures
- firefox-7.0.1
- rebuilt most packages due to libpng-1.5 and other library updates
- python built against Linux-3.x
- latest ~arch packages

Yes there are ABI incompatibilities. *Packaged built for hardfloat will run (with in-kernel CP1 emulation) but uf they interface with softfloat libraries there will be troubles (obviously).
I have one such binary-only app (coreplayer) which just outputs static noise instead of audible sound.

Both GCC and glibc have to be built with softfloat otherwise one will break the other, with sometimes random (seg)faults.
