There are prebuilt binaries for Irix available at
ftp://silicon.chem.qmw.ac.uk/pub/siag and also at
ftp://ftp.edu.stockholm.se/pub/siag/binaries/irix (copy of the above).

INSTALL contains instructions by Harold Toms, who also made the binaries.
I have no way to test any of it and will be happy to update the
information in INSTALL if it contains errors. The only change I can think
of is that the configure script now tests for the availability of fnmatch
and/or gmatch, so there shouldn't be any need to hack the sources.

According to INSTALL, regex is available from "rx-1.5 (downloaded from
somewhere-or-other)". Again, if anybody knows where that is, share! ;-)
