Someone asked if deschall runs under Irix 5.3. The answer's yes. Not
terribly speedy, though, at least on my 200 MHz Indigo 2. I'm getting
about 373 K keys/s. I did finally find a machine that's faster than
my home PC: the 2 CPU Octane (Irix 6.4) is hitting 1646 K keys/s.
Per CPU, though, that's still about the same as my MMX 166. It would be
interesting to see what, if anything, further optimization might bring on
the non-Intel platforms.
