Not as far as I can tell, but I'm confused by them.

For instance, I don't understand the difference between `irix' and
`ultrix'.  The Ultrix and original Irix compilers were `MIPS', and
both cases seem to be for that.  Later Irix was `MIPSpro', but I don't
know if the error format changed.  The current Irix compilers seem to
correspond to the entry `sun', which should actually be `cray', since
both Sun and SGI compilers are based on the Cray one as I understand

Anyway, I think the patterns should be customizable so that language
environments (or proper locale processing) can override the hard-wired
English words.  In the meantime, `compile' should presumably run the
process in the POSIX locale so that the patterns work.
