This raises a good question - what is the relationship between the SGI port,
a port to Digital MIPS/TurboChannel machines, and the MIPS/PC port (that
works on MIPS machines with PCI/EISA buses)? Will they all be the same
endian? Should binarises be comaptible? What about sources such as libc
and the kernel syscall interface?
