Yes, I would.  Tridge just fixed build problems on a Cray SV ? (or J?)
a while ago.

If it's possible under your site's policy, it might be nice to add
that machine to the rsync build farm:

This way everybody who contributes code to rsync can see if it breaks
on Crays without having to wait for user reports.  The end goal is
that it rsync is hopefully stable on all platforms all the time.
