Support for pkgsrc under Irix is in the works.  That is, you can
bootstrap the pkgsrc tools and install a fair number of packages, but at
the moment I haven't yet had the time to find a way to install X

Due to Irix' funky way of installing X (with library paths and bin-paths
in weird places), I suspect that a xpkgwedge-like approach will be
needed -- if you want to look at that, I'd sure be glad for any help.


P.S.: x-post and reply-to set to tech-pkg@.

This one's tricky. You have to use imaginary numbers, like eleventeen...
