I am trying to install a GCC compiler on an IRIX machine. I know there
is a neatly packaged binary for Suns. I would like something similar if
possible. Otherwise I have to solve the chicken and egg riddle of
needing a compiler to compile my compiler. Can anyone shove me in the
And, is there a similar list for IRIX I should know about?

There is a list for IRIX; search the archives for the reference.
There are binary distributions of gcc for IRIX, however I don't know
where to get them! :)
However, a binary gcc for irix is fairly useless since irix doesn't
ship with needed libraries/includes/tools/etc. You are stuck buying
SGI's compiler. So unless you need gcc for some specific reason
that SGI's compiler doesn't address...
I think you need IDO from SGI for IRIX before you can install GCC

better information than SGI's own web support pages.
