I am now back into the project of trying to get the SGI sample 
implementation to build for our projects, which is non-Linux and non-
X11 based. Hence I am about to sync up via CVS to the latest sources, 
and I need to figure out how to generate the public header files as 
part of the build process.

You mentioned above that you were converting the header file 
generation stuff to pure perl instead of perl/awk. Is this done yet?

Alternatively I can sync all this stuff onto a Linux box and do a 
build there. Instead of doing a full build of everything, is it 
possible just to build the public header files on a Linux box? Any 
pointers on where to start doing this?
