Can you try compiling without the optimizer? Or using gcc?

Removed optimize flag from CLFAGS, exact same results

After reviewing this again, I think the issue is that IRIX doesn't have gettent as part of its command set. I didn't realize this as I had been using getent from glibc on IRIX as part of some experiments, and thus my reason for being perplexed. Checking other IRIX machines, the exact same thing happens, so I feel that the main issue is the lack of getent on IRIX. If these test cases could be refactored to not use getent, I'm sure they'd pass on IRIX. OK to close.

Kazuo: is there an equivalent to getent(1) on IRIX that we can use instead? (It's been over 25 years since I last used an IRIX system).

If not, we can instead modify the testsuite to skip those test groups if getent isn't available.
