Not exacly showstopping but here are some suggestions for potential
inclusion in future boost distributions, based on running on IRIX with
MIPSPro compilers.

IRIX 'sh' doesn't like scripts with non UNIX line endings! (extracted
from the tar.gz, although RC2 the zip file also has the same issue)

Shipping a 'tar' will generally mean that the UNIX scripts should be

add the following to make MIPSPro the default for IRIX rather than gcc
when building bjam
