I have compiled netperf 2.1, using the o32 abi. Since we use IRIX
6.2, 6.3, 6.4 on a variety of systems, I used "-32 -mips2"
compiler/linker options as a common denominator, so that I can use a
basic set of 32 bit binaries (O32 ABI in SGI terms) which work on
all their systems. It seems to work just fine.

I don't have the makefile now, but I don't remember doing anything
much with it other than including some #defines and including the
compiler options.
