First, I bootstrapped pkgsrc into $HOME/bulk:


$ cd
$ env \
     CC=cc \
     CXX=CC \
     MIPSPROBASE=$HOME/mipspro-wrapper \
     ./proj/pkgsrc/bootstrap/bootstrap \
         --prefix=$HOME/bulk \
         --unprivileged \
         --compiler=mipspro \
         --quiet
...

Then, make a backup copy of LOCALBASE:

 $ tar cfz bulk.tar.gz bulk

It is a good idea to store all configuration files outside of LOCALBASE:

 $ mkdir bulk-etc
 $ cp bulk/etc/mk.conf bulk-etc/.

Like on Solaris, I needed to comment out the pre-build script. The configuration files look similar to the ones from the Solaris build.

To get a usable environment, I have built some package before in $HOME/pkg, so that I can link to them (for example ginstall and groff).

bmake: exec(/bin/sh) failed (Arg list too long)
*** Error code 1

Grmpf. IRIX has only 20k for the command line and the environment, and that gets filled pretty quickly. Let's see what's the cause for that. It's the command starting with "${RUN} set +e;" and going until the lonely "fi" in line 534. That's pretty much. Since I don't know how to break that into smaller chunks, I stop here.

Some hours later

I've made some progress. I didn't rewrite the bulk builds but simply patched bmake to create a temporary file and write the overly long command lines there when an execve fails due to E2BIG. I applied this patch in the devel/bmake directory and re-ran bootstrap. Things seem to work now.

At least, lang/perl is building, which takes some time. Not to speak of the database generation that follows. Meanwhile, I'm adding the following to the mk.conf file, just as in the Solaris bulk build:


BULK_PREREQ+=       pkgtools/bootstrap-mk-files
BULK_PREREQ+=       pkgtools/tnftp
BULK_PREREQ+=       pkgtools/mtree
BULK_PREREQ+=       pkgtools/pax
BULK_PREREQ+=       pkgtools/pkg_install
BULK_PREREQ+=       sysutils/mtree

BULK_PREREQ+=       sysutils/checkperms
