The predecessor to Altium, Protel, might run in SoftWindows95.
There are some IRIX-native EDA tools, but Solaris and HPUX were what those companies mainly used, for systems like Mentor Graphics, Cadence, and Synopsis.
I know that Alliance and Icarus (free software tools) have been ported to IRIX.

We use Orcad 16-point-something at work but it is mondo expensive. LT Spice, in addition to being the best Spice ever, has great schematic capture but no PCB layout capability.

Xcircuit for IRIX, Hamei told me about it. I haven't got it running yet (but that's only because I got around to sorting the issues I had). It does look good.

Yes that looks like it, although I'm not sure if it does testing and flow control.
