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...
