um, listed where? TeX Live does not list other software.

if you can find someone who knows how to do this, and wants to take
the burden of compiling SGI TeXLive away from Kaja, I am sure we'd all be
delighted. Remember, TeXLive is produced by a very small number of
people in a very small number of spare hours - to get proper support
for complex families of OSes like SGI needs extra volunteer hours.

quite. so does the TeX Live source tree build for you off the shelf?
thats what I *really* care about, not the precompiled things. after
all, I assume that 99% of SGI people do have a C compiler.
