I am surprised to see that it does not. My gencat is provided by own
custom glibc package (built using pkgsrc).
Some glibc packages are in pkgsrc-wip, but it seems like overkill for
just gencat. Then again, glibc could provide you with many functions you
are missing on your IRIX.

I also get a variety of gencat errors when I use gencat from glibc, so
maybe you will have different errors.
Maybe you can package up the gencat from NetBSD source?
