For the compile farm project I manage I was proposed a donation of the
exact same hardware (Origin 300 with 4 cpus and 2GB RAM). I'll let
you know when I have more information.

BTW, in the SGI/MIPS family, do you know what is the most powerful
hardware currently supported (hardware not weighting near a ton, more
like a workstation or a few U)? Bootstraping GCC takes a while these
days :).

Thanks for your help,
