Increasing available space did indeed allow a successful build. I
don't have a sgimips myself, so I can't test if the resulting binary
is bootable.  I did this build mostly to prove to someone else (who
does have a SGI) that they weren't doing anything wrong with their
build.  Sorry I can't provide more constructive feedback.  Thanks.
