Maybe I should have added:

That's less than half the size of IRIX (6.3 on my Indy)
and about a quarter of the size of IRIX64 (6.4 on info.engr)

Of course, IRIX has much more in it, like XFS, Trusted IRIX,
Real Time and priority-classes scheduling, MPP (in 6.4), digital
media device drivers ..., but I thought you may want to know the numbers.

IRIX64: 2992844 (text) + 967960 (data) + 405460 (bss) = 4366264  (6.4)
IRIX:   2224072 (text) + 202752 (data) + 196560 (bss) = 2623384  (6.3)
