You may have some luck with the pkgbuilds of these toolchains [1] 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 [2].
