Sorry for taking quite a while to respond... 0.7.6 has taken this last
week right from me.

If the wv in 0.7.6 doesn't get any farther, could you take a look at
config.log (in the wv directory) or send it to the list? It should
detail the source of the error. Often this is the result of running
"cc", which might not resolve to any compiler on your system.
It might also be trying to explicitly run "gcc" instead of your IRIX
