In solaris, this is done in the following manner:
Assume the interface has a "normal" ip of 10.0.0.50
Assume you want your interface you have another ip of 10.0.0.60.
ifconfig le0:1 10.0.0.60 up
The :1 sets up an "alias" for the interface. I am not certain how this
applies to IRIX.

It may be possible to setup some sort of routing to (secondary) loopbacks
in order to emulate a second ip address. Perhaps someone that's done this
will tell.... I know how to do it on ciscos, but cisco's IOS is a bit different
from Unix Router Daemons.
Good luck. It is often nice to have secondary ip addresses to pick up probes.
