Great news about the irix port, Mark! Thanks for pitching in.

I'm unsure of what you're getting at here. Can you explain what you mean 
by "use libtool here?" If there's a less kludgey way to do this, using 
libtool, then let's do it.

The whole mkcheck thing is a bit of a gross hack, unfortunately. (You've 
probably noticed this by now :] ). Some of the performace info was 
necessary for tuning and making sure the library wasn't completely 
insane, size and compile-time wise. I couldn't figure out a way to do 
this with more conventional tools. I'm open to suggestions, however.

Thanks,
benjamin
