Hmph. If you could figure out why SGI has a broken <netinet/tcp.h>
and how could we circumcode it, that would be nice.

I am looking at IRIX 6.5's <netinet/tcp.h> (haven't yet tried
compiling _60) and I'm rather baffled by the above.

[snip]

47 #if BYTE_ORDER == LITTLE_ENDIAN
48 u_char th_x2​:4, /* (unused) */
49 th_off​:4; /* data offset */
50 #endif
51 #if BYTE_ORDER == BIG_ENDIAN
52 u_char th_off​:4, /* data offset */
53 th_x2​:4; /* (unused) */
54 #endif

[snap]

I didn't know MIPS has, ummm, circular registers? :-)

Wild guess as to why you get dups - none of those symbols are defined
as you have not included <endian.h> or whatever - so 0 == 0 in both cases.

This is a real pain that I think ANSI C has foisted on us hardware types.
When your C compiler is "big endian" it is _supposed_ to start allocating
fields at MS end of word. When "little endian" then it is supposed to start
from LS end.

However those of use that design chips don't change bit positions based
on endian mode chip is in (too many wires and gates that people don't
want to pay for).

So to have a struct with bitfields describe a hardware register with (say)
th_off in MS nibble and th_x2 in LS nibble you get messes like the above.

The same kind of mess can occur when describing network packets which have
a defined order of fields "on-the-wire".

<slap> Ahh, that might be it. Kurt, could you verify? Add #include
<sys/endian.h> before #include <netinet/tcp.h> in Socket.xs and retry.

  That doesn't do it. I'm looking into it. Watch this space.
