groff - which is a dependancy for many other packages - does not build by default on IRIX because there is no default implementation of getopt_long.

The NetBSD/pkgsrc libgetopt does, however, provide this function - but groff doesn't build against it!

cd textproc/groff ; bmake

I copied /usr/bsd/lib/*getopt* into textproc/groff/.buildlink/lib32 and then added "-lgetopt" to the various Makefile.sub's - which allows the package to compile with the following changes:

* Add "-lgetopt" to groff-1.19.2/src/utils/xtotroff/Makefile.sub
* Add "-lgetopt" to groff-1.19.2/src/utils/pfbtops/Makefile.sub

I'm sure there's a much neater way to do this, but I'm not sufficiently experienced with pkgsrc to know how to this properly.  This does seem to do the trick, though.
