We have GRASS running under IRIX 4.0.1 here at CERL.  An official port
of GRASS to the SGI's has never been done, but it compiles just fine
if you specify  -cckr as one of the compile flags.  There are some
bugs that manifest on the SGI's, but in general it works well.  There
is also an IRIS driver which gives a color table of around 3800 entries.
