to support IRIX with the package system, at the very least, grep for SunOS
in /usr/pkgsrc/mk to see what was done for Solaris support.  

You'd also probably need a BSD "make" and definately need to make sure
that /usr/pkgsrc/pkgtools/pkg_install all works.

There may be more, but these are what come to mind at first.
