hey jan,
	how's it been running on IRIX, which release do you have it running 
on?  I worked on getting it up on 6.5.23M but did not have much 
success.  Granted I did not put *too* much effort on getting it up 
(maybe like 5 hours over a couple days).  from what i saw pkgsrc looks 
like it would be a great fit for IRIX, the current state of SGI 
software management, while very flexible, is kinda lacking when 
compared to pkgsrc or even apt...
