SGI changed their object file format when they went to IRIX 5._ 
So in order to compile a new grass program (which uses previously
compiled libraries), you will have to recompile the libraries.  You
should probably delete all the object & executables in GRASS and
recompile the whole thing.  If you have some systems which are still
using IRIX 4._ sharing the same executables, then just recompile
GRASS under 5.2 with a different head file containing different 
ARCH and GISBASE (see the head file I sent you for a few other flag 
settings that are different under 5.2).  Then on any systems that
run 5.2, the grass4.1 & xgrass4.1 startup scripts need to reflect 
the different GISBASE.
