binutils 2.8.1
egcs 1.0.3
kernel 2.3.99pre5 (Current oss.sgi.com CVS)
glibc 2.0.6

Everything else is even more experimental :)

binutils cvs + patches seems to work for userspace (Kernel does Crash) 
but Ulf seems to work on the last bits.
glibc 2.0.6 works and is basically ok but out of date. Andras Jaeger
and Ulf Carlsson did very hard to get glibc 2.2! to work - CVS should
work and with the newest binutils it should even compile.
