After bootstrapping pkgsrc on IRIX 6.5 installed packages
(pkg_info -Xa) are marked as MACHINE_ARCH=mipseb. The value 'mipseb' is set
from 'bootstrap' script.

On the other hand bmake's internal MACHINE_ARCH is set to 'mips'
according to script that uses IRIX's 'uname -p'
on systems other than *BSD, SunOS, Linux, HP-UX, Interix and UnixWare.

As a result packages built after bootstrapping will not be installed
by pkg_add due to difference in architectures.

See above.
It probably makes sense to add IRIX64 case to bmake's script
and set MACHINE_ARCH to 'mipseb' (On my system uname(1) says IRIX64, not IRIX).
