Is there any reason qemu-mipsel isn't good enough? You can find a detailed howto at: http://www.aurel32.net/info/debian_mips_qemu.php but if you want just an usable system ASAP, go straight to: http://people.debian.org/~aurel32/qemu/mipsel/ and two wgets and apt-get install qemu later, you're one command away from fully working lenny. It's not a speed demon so dist-upgrade further will take a while, but then, the real thing isn't fast either...
