Newport was a video board for SGI Indy/Indigo2 workstations (more details can
be found in it's README file for the morbidly curious), not likely to be found
anywhere near most PC's.

I thought there was a build.sh flag to output the default mod list, but I don't
see it or remember it.   The file I pass to --modfile has a the modules listed

Of course, I also run it with the -n flag to keep on going after error, since
I'm usually just using it to see which modules build cleanly and which I now
need to fix to build on Solaris for some reason.
