unless tk is faster in n32 as well...

On SGI's freeware archive site tcl/tk8.0.x is compiled n32 for IRIX 6.2
and up. Does pd-gui change tcl/tk in anyway?

I wish I had access to the MipsPro 7.2 compilers on a Irix 6.5 (for the
new audio lib with suupport for the adat card) machine then I would do
it. My machine at home is using gcc2.8.1 that does n32, prob not much
faster (if at all) than o32 with mipspro....

BTW-- anybody ran pd - gem on the new NT SGI's?
