If it runs on OpenBSD it should not be very hard to port the relevant

My investigations say that it is more complex than that. I just found a
message in port-sgimips  about NetBSD not supporting SGI Octane
because there is no mips64 support in the toolchain (apparently
confirmed by http://wiki.netbsd.org/ports/sgimips/), although an answer
to this e-mail  does say there is mips64 support.
I was told privately the mips64 toolchain support is essential for
porting code from OpenBSD, and NetBSD lacks that. I would like to
confirm that with you.
Besides this thread, I've also sent e-mail to people and some kindly
answered with tips and documentation, although nobody has the time for a
mentoring project right now. Anyway, I'm still at your disposal for
that project (going to receive the SGI Fuel this week :-]).
