[torqueusers] Compiling Torque under IRIX64

I have come across the following problems compiling both
Torque 2.2.1 and 2.3.3 under Irix on an Origin 2000:

1) Incorrect detection of word length

Problem: Configure compiles a test progam (conftest) to
determine the machine's type.  This defaults to compiling
with the n32 interface, and as a result some parts are
compiled -n32 and some -64.

Solution: Always use "export CFLAGS=-64" before starting

2) Incorrectly defined functions index() and rindex()

Problem: Type mismatch.  The man page for string(3C) states
"index (rindex) are included as duplicates of strchr (strrchr)
for compatibility" and later "Declarations for index and
rindex are specifically omitted from <string.h> due to
possible naming conflicts. Instead, they are declared in

Solution: Add the line "include <strings.h>" to the top of
src/server/array_func.c and src/server/job_func.c
