You should be able to build it with egcs 1.0.3a and binutils 2.8.1 with
patches - Both can be found on oss.sgi.com.
The current binutils should work ok for mips/mipsel - The gcc 2.96
is significantly broken in some aspects (c++ for example).

Look at the "MIPS-HOWTO" on http://oss.sgi.com - Its not Cobalt specific.
