AF_IPX and PF_IPX should have the same value. That is, I hope it's always that 
way, because many people, including myself, use one or the other 
indiscriminatedly. I really don't know when to use one or the other.

Anyways, it seems IRIX doesn't provide IPX support. Therefore, I think it's 
prudent to enclose the AF_IPX usage inside #ifdef, like what's done right 
below with AF_AX25. I've provided a patch; can you test it?

keep string.h only and change bzero(ptr, size) to memset(ptr, 0, size). It's 
more portable.
