Which was dependent on the old integrated Irix ptools source tree
structure for xfs-cmds (i.e. prior to separate GPL source trees for
xfsprogs, etc). It hasn't been updated since 2003 and so doesn't
even have "supported_os" tag in it. I'm pretty sure that getting it
to "work" is more hassle than it's worth because the diffs will
never been clean like they were on irix where libxfs was an ism link
to the kernel code from within the xfs-cmds ism...
