We're also use the MPC860.  For the tools we use CDK 2.0 from Montavista, and we've had no problems
with this.  To install CDK 2.0 for the 860 do this:

 > cd /mnt/cdrom/bin
 > ./hhl-host-install
  ... and then select "embeddedplanet-rpxlite" for the board

This provides you with:

i) libraries
ii) a root filesystem for NFS mounting your target
iii) standard tools ppc_8xx-gcc, ppc_8xx-ld, etc.

After this installation all you need to do to compile a linuxppc kernel is change CROSS_COMPILE to
ppc_8xx- in the top level Makefile.
