The sccs and rcs id strings we embed in our libraries are static variables with no references to them. The IRIX cc compiler optimizes away these unused variables, and hence the 'what' and 'ident' commands can't find any NSPR version strings in our libraries on IRIX. The fix is to add dummy references to the sccs and rcs id strings in the same files.
The fix is checked into NSPRPUB_RELEASE_3_1_BRANCH. /cvsroot/mozilla/nsprpub/lib/libc/src/plvrsion.c, revision 18.104.22.168 /cvsroot/mozilla/nsprpub/pr/src/prvrsion.c, revision 22.214.171.124.
The fix is checked into the tip. /cvsroot/mozilla/nsprpub/lib/libc/src/plvrsion.c, revision 3.4 /cvsroot/mozilla/nsprpub/pr/src/prvrsion.c, revision 3.4
