I honestly wouldn't worry about such legacy systems: their respective
maintainers take care of testing them, and it would be hard nowadays to
even find both hardware and OS media to set up a new system.

FWIW, IRIX 6.5 was last supported in gcc 4.7, and that's the only IRIX
release I'm still testing.  IRIX 5.3/6.x was deprecated in gcc 4.5
already, a release no longer supported and thus irrelevant.  Same for
Tru64 UNIX: V5.1 support was deprecated in 4.7; still testing that

Hope this helps.
