You may have some luck with the pkgbuilds of these toolchains  using
distcc on your handheld. In case you don't have a sufficiently big
storage device built in, I recommend to run NFS over usb-net. I have
been working on SH4 (dreamcast) for a while but with no bog results.
Simply using the debian disc available doing the above mentioned thing
using the broadband adaptor.
If you simply want to build a working system, I'd recommend buildroot .
