Pardon me, but for the last four months or so, I've been sending SGI
build reports. In that time, I have had exactly two problems, and
they were both SGI's "fault". In fact, I don't think I even send in
the failure reports.
1. SGI has C++ graphics libraries, and that kills the undump process.
This is an easy work-around (-no-tiff).
2. The 20.4 unexelfsgi.c for SGI didn't work with the latest SGI
compiler. Justin Banks (of SGI) told me to use 21.0's, and that
As far as sending you an SGI box, that would be nice, be we are just

All that I know is that as long as I am working on an IRIX box, the
latest version of XEmacs will work. I can't promise more than that,
but that's all I've got.
