You could always try JamVM.  It doesn't need javac to build, just a C

and as long as IRIX has pthreads and dlopen, etc. it should work with
minor modifications.  You will need to update to
recognise IRIX, and either create an os/irix directory by copying the
linux implementation, or just use the linux directory directly, e.g:

mipsel-*-irix) host_cpu=mips host_os=linux ;;

I'm guessing here what the canonical host string is for IRIX/MIPS32.
As a matter of interest, is IRIX/MIPS big or little endian?

Hi Robert!

The host string on our IRIX is:

$ ./config.guess mips-sgi-irix6.5

AFAIK, MIPS CPUs can be boot little or big endian.  But I don't know if
that applies to all MIPS implementations.

As far as I know, all SGIs/IRIX are configured for big-endian.
