What is the dependency style determined by configure?  You might
grep for the line "dependency style" in config.log to find out.

Is the failure still present if you run configure with the
"--disable-dependency-tracking" option?

Actually, as long as we have support in depcomp, we care that it works.
Once there is consensus we should no longer care about a given depmode,
we should remove it from the depcomp script altogether, rather than
keeping it there half-broken.

Has been IRIX discontinued?  I wasn't aware of that.  If it has, we
might indeed want to remove support from it from the depcomp script
(that can be done for Automake 1.14).

The support for SGI compiler has been removed in the master version
of the depcomp script (see commit 'v1.13-11-g35da608'), so I'm closing
these bug reports.
