I don't mind keeping the IRIX code around while we have a buildbot running
for it, but I do wonder if we can start trimming IRIX-specific bits from
our documentation.  It seems unlikely that someone will be making a fresh
installation of OpenAFS on an IRIX system....

Do we know of remaining/existing IRIX deployments, and whether they would
be affected by such a change?
