Not at this time, no. I believe we have a half implemented, untested
set of primitives for Alpha, so it would not take much effort to add
them. If someone out in OMPI land has a machine they could give me
access to, I can add this to the todo list.

That shouldn't happen. I think I have access to a couple SGI boxes
around here - I'll give that a whirl this afternoon. What version of
IRIX was this on?
