It might require that code that is specific to Irix be seperated out and
made as a 
linkable library, and then to have special calls to that specific code from
within the 
GCC compiled portions.. Any build that prefers a proprietary build over a
one will have lots of problems across the board.. If you want to compile
blender to be 
able to run on a multi-processor cluster of some sort that would probably
call for a different 
beast, blender broken up into modules that talk to each other, for

Also I would tend to wonder how much of SGI's compilers are designed to

movement and non-existent..  I wonder how much the politics of
software/hardware sales 
enters into the splitting of non-proprietary  open source developments. One
easy way is to 
change the way things are done, that sometimes translates to changing the
language and 
the tools.. If blender breaks in Irix, its probably SGI's fault, not
