I removed the entire mipsisa32*-linux target and am currently building.

The configure options to acheive the same compiler configuration will be:

configure [...] --with-float=soft --with-arch=mips32

Should I install that if it seems to work??

The alternative is to make mipsisa32*-linux* default to those options. The way to do this is further down in config.gcc, in the section which
defaults with_foo if --with-foo was not passed; or up top in the
mipsisa* section. Doesn't really matter, just be sure not to override
them if they are specified.

The problem as I see it is that some processors that are "isa32" have hard-float and some have soft-float, so having a target for isa32 that may do the wrong thing seems less than useful.

My vote (for whatever that is worth) is to remove the mipsisa32*-linux* target.
