Hi,

Recently, I downloaded the VNC unix sources to be installed in a SGI
machine(Octane) running the operating system "Irix64 release 6.5". It's has
been a smooth installation until I try to "make World" for Xvnc. It returns
with the errors below:

        cd ./config/makedepend && rm -f -r Makefile Makefile.dep makedepend
*.o bootstrap
        cd ./config/makedepend && make -f Makefile.proto bootstrap

Does that meant the it does not support SGI os?? How do I resolve the issue?
Note that I do not have problem running the vncviewer.
