[1] If compiling with cc on Irix 6, then use

	CC="cc -32 -Wl,-woff,84" ./buildall

to build (good) "old style" 32 bit code and suppress stupid linker warnings
about unused libraries.

Also, to get NFS V3 working, you need these two patches from SGI:

	patch 1615: NFS over TCP 
	patch 2041: NFS roll-up patch

and then add "-p tcp" to /etc/config/nfsd.options.

[2] If compiling on Solaris 2.6+, you need to add -D_LARGEFILE64_SOURCE to
CFLAGS to enable the 64bit file offset interface:


If you're using the standard configure script, it will add this flag for you

[3] DU-4.0 may not use NFS (server-side) V3 by default.  You may need to
adjust /etc/init.d/nfs, and change the nfsd startup line from to
	if /usr/sbin/nfsd $NUM_NFSD; then
	if /usr/sbin/nfsd -t 8 -u 8 ; then

[4] HPUX 9.X has a bad /bin/sh that runs out of fixed memory allocations.
If you use the configure script, you must run it as

	/bin/ksh ./configure

Also, this system has a bad /bin/make that cannot handle VPATH well.  You
cannot use --srcdir or the buildall script with it.  I suggest you install
GNU make or configure locally with "/bin/ksh ./configure".

[5] nfsx is currently broken. We hope to fix it soon...
