I have just tried building mipsel boot-floppies with the current cvs
and found that a change in the latest kernel-package release breaks
boot-floppies for mipsel:

I: creating 'linuxr4k-kn04'
cp: cannot stat `/var/tmp/boot-floppies/extract-tmp-4900/boot/vmlinuz*':
 No such file or directory

This is caused by the fact that kernel-package 7.75 now puts the kernel
under the name "vmlinux" instead of "vmlinuz" into the kernel-image-*
packages for mipsel. This is the "correct" way, as in contrast to
most other architectures the kernel image file is uncompressed on
mipsel, but boot-floppies expects a file named "vmlinuz".
Up to now I have used kernel packages built with older kernel-package 
releases for testing boot-floppies, so this problem has not occured before.

It looks like the following change to kernel.sh is needed:

I am currently trying a build with this modification, but that needs some
hours on a DECstation...
