 I don't think there's a standardised one, just configure with CC/CXX set 
for n32 compilation, e.g.:

$ /path/to/configure CC="gcc -mabi=n32" CXX="g++ -mabi=n32"

(and any other options set as usually).  This has to be with CC/CXX rather 
than CFLAGS/CXXFLAGS so that it is guaranteed to be never overridden with 
any logic that might do any fiddling with compilation options.  This will 
set up the test suite accordingly.

 NB this may already be the compiler's default, depending on how it was 
configured, i.e. if `--with-abi=n32' was used, in which case no extra 
options will be required.  I don't know if any standard MIPS distribution 
does it though; 64-bit MIPS/Debian might.  This will be reported with `gcc 
--help -v', somewhere along the way.

 Let me know if there are issues with this approach.
