The IRIX 5.3 compiler prolly won't accept the xmame source code. So you
have to compile it using GCC which leads into a 30% slower binary.
And as your hardware ..
.. doesn't seem to be very fast it makes next to no sense to try to
compile the source (the result would be very disappointing). Neither by
the time it will take to actualy do the build (estimated 20 hours) nor
by the performance you will get from the binary.
You can - of course - try to compile other (read: older) UNIX games for
your machine. There are quite a few out there that still give a lot of
fun. Check out http://www.yqcomputer.com/
