I compiled me a -current some weeks ago. It did not compile out of the
box. I linked  /sys/lib/libkern/arch/mips to /sys/lib/libkern/arch/mipsel
Am not sure if this is legal but it made the kernel compile.

But the resulting kernel wasn't stable enough for production. Using an
Indigo2 diskless client (IRIX) the kernel crashes always in
miscfs/genfs/genfs_vnops.c as the Indigo boots. This assertion failes:

KASSERT((origoffset & (PAGE_SIZE - 1)) == 0 && origoffset >= 0);

Linux clients which only have their homes mounted on the qube didn't cause
such an deterministic failure, but still the qube crashed some time.
