Well, it did for me with an Indy running 5.3 .

As an aside, Irix as shipped has to be the most simple unix variant to
break that I've ever come across. Why on earth does all that stuff have
to run setuid root? Never thought I'd be advocating a switch to Linux
on security grounds, but there you go!

Pete
