This looks great. Just for fun I did a quick compile under irix 6.5.8 on 
an SGI Octane, dvhtool --print-all and dvhtool --print-all /dev/rdsk/dksXXXvh 
worked fine. --vh-to-unix failed with 'Short read: Error 0', I assume this 
simply isn't finished yet (or maybe it doesn't work under irix).
BTW it compiled fine with gcc as well as with the MIPSPro compiler (after
replacing this little gcc'ism:)
