I tried pkgsrc on Irix today, and so far found two interesting things:

1) configure runs *eight* times. Can we at least use --cache-file or
better fix this to just run once?

2) I get lots of these:

	bmake: "../../mk/../../mk/" line 83: warning: Couldn't read
	shell's output for "if cc -v 2>&1 | /sbin/grep -q 'gcc version'; then
	echo `cc -v 2>&1 | /sbin/grep 'gcc version'`;  fi"

FWIW, "cc -v" says:
	rfhsi8089% cc -v
	MIPSpro Compilers: Version 7.4

3) I'm not sure if that's a consequence of the above, FETCH_CMD is set to
/usr/bin/ftp. That seems because ZOULARISBASE is not set - when setting it
manually to LOCALBASE, things seem to work fine.
Why is ZOULARISBASE in but not (etc.)?
