I don't think there's been much activity on the sgimips port for a long time.
You may be better off just using OpenBSD as Miod and company seem to be more
active (and have the support you seek already). I think their sgi port is
almost entirely a superset of ours by now.
In any event, wouldn't the library be much better off with a bunch of cheap
atom machines? These SGIs are pretty ancient, and atoms would probably pay for
themselves in power savings over a few years.
