One of our SGIs is still running 5.3, and I'm running the irix6.2 client
on it with no problems. Performance is pretty unspectacular: I'm getting
about 190 Kkeys/s on a 200 MHz R4400 (Indigo2). I'm really looking
forward to the 64-bit code for the R10000 machines, but I hope someone is
able to squeeze more performance out of the 32-bit Irix code, too.
