I took the standard IRIX 5.3 libs and header files as supplied by SGI.
There are a number of issues, but having been popular 10 years ago,
much GNU software still more or less supports it; at least the standard
stuff (OK, some needed a big of cleaning, which I then fed back to the
original authors). All right, maybe NextStep really is harder...

What is the particular problem you are facing?
