 IRIX Binary Compatibility

On Lamp continues its series on NetBSD's IRIX Binary Compatibility.

"Therefore, it is a good idea to start with a simple static binary. We will use IRIX 5's sed(1) here. When we run it using the NetBSD native function to set up the stack and CPU register, it is able to start up. Then it gets a SIGSYS signal and it dumps core on the first system call, because our system call table for IRIX binaries is still empty. It is possible to check what the missing system call is with the ktrace(1) command on NetBSD:"
