All I'd done so far was to get our make to compile. I'll check the changes
in. They were fairly minor, and both in util.c:

#include <time.h>		near the top

add && !defined(__sgi)		to the strftime #if line.

The only other change I had to make was that IRIX 6.4 doesn't have vfork,
so I made a vfork routine which just called fork(). I'm not sure if that's
the right thing to do. Since IRIX is up to 6.5.6, I'll hold off on that
because I don't think 6.4 is the version we'll port to. :-)

Take care,
