I've seen GridFlow 0.7.x run on OSX/PPC, Solaris/SPARC, and I just got it
to run on a ARM-V4L without adding anything ARM-specific, so I guess a
SGI/MIPS/Irix port wouldn't be so difficult. By experience, most of the
trouble comes from OS differences.

I think I recall trying to compile GF on a 12-processor SGI/MIPS and there
were a few troubles I was having with that IRIX OS but the most trouble
was stemming from the fact that the math dept puts a 10M quota on every
account (!!!). I abandoned quickly but I don't recall why. Anyhow,
seeing "make -j15" run was quite impressive. ;-)
