Two days for that mail?

Btw, Linux/MIPS errno values are (almost) the same as IRIX.

This is the fun part. You probably need to cheat to make textutils'
autoconf work for crosscompilation. It's usually ok to run configure on
a Linux/Intel system (Using a glibc system is a good idea) and then
crosscompile with a command like
make CC=mips-linux-gcc CFLAGS="-O2 -pipe" LDFLAGS="-static -s"
Autoconf is *nice* in almost all cases but it's often a bitch when
crosscompiling, so feel free to use every dirty trick in the book ...

Thanks, would be useful.
