After a few days of hacking I finally got the netbsd package collection
compile from scratch on IRIX 5.3 - well, by no means completely yet - it
still fails at noumerous places, but IMHO it's good enough to be useful
for a start.
Since it still needs quite a lot of improvement I would very much
welcome any feedback from people who still run IRIX 5.3.
If you want to give it a try, instructions can be found at
Comments and corrections are appreciated.
Thanks a lot.
