If I may add.  Building for me only works with LDCMD and SHLIBLD as

	cc with `-lc -lm' added to DLLFLAGS and SHLIBLDFLAGS

It did not work with

	ld (gives an exec format error in the main binary)
	gcc (cannot find libgcc.a???)

I am not sure up to what extend this is a problem with AIX in general or
the specific system Fritz and I have access to, which in particular has
gcc built 3 years ago for AIX 3.something.

Perhaps someone knows more about this?
