I am trying to get 7.1.3 to compile on IRIX 6.5.13 using GCC 3.0.1 ... I
always end up having this error:

gcc -Wall -Wmissing-prototypes -Wmissing-declarations
-I../../../../src/include -U_NO_XOPEN4 -c -o s_lock.o s_lock.c s_lock.c:
In function `s_lock': s_lock.c:134: warning: passing arg 1 of pointer to
function discards qualifiers from pointer target type s_lock.c: At top
level: s_lock.c:234: warning: `tas_dummy' defined but not used as: Error:
/var/tmp/ccLTwXmB.s, line 403: undefined assembler operation:  .global
      .global tas gmake[4]: *** [s_lock.o] Error 1 gmake[4]: Leaving
directory `/usr/local/src/postgresql-7.1.3/src/backend/storage/buffer'
gmake[3]: *** [buffer-recursive] Error 2 gmake[3]: Leaving directory
gmake[2]: *** [storage-recursive] Error 2

I read in the archives that GCC was not very good to compile on IRIX, at
this stage I have no choice, we don't have MIPSPro licensed.

First question: what can I do to solve this error?
Second question: is there a binary for IRIX 6.5 that I can download from

I am trying to contact SGI to see if we can get a version of the compiler,
once that's done and we can compile, I willing to provide a binary version
of pgsql compiled under IRIX.
