No, same here: I don't use --with-sysroot for the newlib targets.
Do you build a unified gcc+newlib tree?  If not, I don't think
the above boilerplate works; you'll have to use something else
instead.  E.g. install newlib first, change your board files
to match your build tree setup, or add links from the gcc build
directory to the newlib one.  But unified trees are simpler really
(i.e. a newlib and libgloss symlink in the gcc tree).

FWIW, on mine, the plugin test was:

/foo/gcc/xgcc -B/foo/gcc/ linker_plugin24984.c -fno-diagnostics-show-caret -flto -fuse-linker-plugin -isystem /foo/mipsisa64-elf/./newlib/targ-include -isystem /bar/newlib/libc/include -B/foo/mipsisa64-elf/./libgloss/mips/ -L/foo/mipsisa64-elf/./libgloss/mips -L/bar/libgloss/mips -B/foo/mipsisa64-elf/./newlib/ -L/foo/mipsisa64-elf/./newlib -lm -Tidt.ld -o linker_plugin24984.exe

where the expected libgloss and newlib flags are there.  If you are
using a unified tree and those flags aren't showing up in your run,
it might be worth sticking a puts after your "set ldflags ..." line to
see what setting you have (i.e. to see whether newlib_link_flags is
going wrong, or whether the flags are somehow being dropped).
