NGS-SDK has a custom build system with custom checks.  I don’t know on
what architectures it is supposed to run.  Building it on x86_64 was
quite hard because I had to go around the many invalid assumptions.

It’s a bioinfo library, so I don’t think MIPS (or ARM) is officially
supported, but personally I would like to resist the urge to declare all
bioinfo tools unsupported on non-Intel.  (Unfortunately, I don’t have
time to check if NGS-SDK could be build on other platforms at the
