I also put up packages which I use on my Qube2. List is available here :

Make sure to read READ_ME.TXT

They're all compiled with:
-march=mips3 -mtune=r5k -mabi=32 -O2 -fforce-addr

except for those dated 25-Apr-2006 and older, which didn't have 
-march=mips3 in the flags. I did some testing with digest, and this flag 
greatly sped up verifying checksums and such. I tried with -march=r5k 
and -march=mips4 and it makes broken executables. mips3 works fine and 
speeds up some tasks..


I keep my pkgsrc up to date (sync once a week or so), and make new 
binary packages available once they're compiled.
