But probably not okay that libf2c as built doesn't seem to have any
global symbols in it. :-(

This is the root of the problem, it appears: the config test for
libf2c was checking for f_open (or something), saw nothing, and
decided libf2c didn't really exist. It did exist, but it was
useless.  I can force it to use the useless libraries by editing
Makeconf, but unsurprisingly, that's useless, too.

I'm having similar problems with libF77 and libI77 packages which I
also pulled off of netlib.  I haven't figured out how to tweak the
makefiles supplied with any of these to generate usable libraries
yet, but I expect that will become clear after I get some sleep.
(Probably I should just figure out what octave was doing and do
that, too.)

At the moment, I'm still lost in a battle of whose ar to use (gnu vs
Irix) and/or how to get Irix to create something gcc can use
(apparently also involves 32- vs. 64-bin issues as well; urgh).

Anyway, assuming I discover the magical incantations tomorrow, would
anybody else out there be interested if I made up a binary
distribution of octave for Irix 6.2?
