If you really want to add specific code for every architecture under the sun,
go ahead, but I personnally much prefer keeping the code simple and machine
independent by doing that kind of translating with links like

        IRIX-5.3-IP26 -> IRIX-5.3-IP22

Of course, this probably requires human intervention, but I much prefer
that to a script that tries to be too smart.
