I think the answer is "sort of".

Certainly the software ports for various MIPS architectures are similiar,
including the kernel.  SGI/Linux is really just an instance of big endian

The value added in SGI Linux is that there's a company standing somewhat
behind it, offering help with some of the SGI-specific issues.
