You could get source files, prepared for SGI from cu-seeme.cornell.edu,
directory pub/CU-SeeMe/Reflector. There are 3.00b3 and 4.00b2 version,
so choose 3.0, if you want NV connections, or 4.0 if not, because 4.0b2
has a bug, which crashes reflector when used with nv and vat.
But there is a 4.00b3 somewhere, don't know yet where. If you need it,
I'll inform you when I find it.

I have a colleague who is running reflector (both 3.0 and 4.0 version) on
a SGI Indy. Don't know exactly what's the system version (it has something
to do with 5.2, if I am not wrong).
If I am not wrong, I also had problems with pre-compiled version of
reflector.
Compiling it solved the problem.

Hope this is of some help.

Bye,
Robert.
