[Rd] AIX & R-devel

The AIX build of the development version isn't quite working due to a
problem in the automatic symbol extraction process.

Compilation of R itself goes fine, but then in the script tools/ldAIX4
doesn't extract the symbols from arithmetic.o.  This is because
  bash-2.01$ nm arithmetic.o
  nm: arithmetic.o: 0654-206 Cannot process the symbol table.

As a result, R_finite is not exported and the vfonts module cannot be
built.  If the necessary symbols are added by hand to etc/R.exp then the
rest of the build proceeds normally.

Compiling arithmetic.c doesn't produce any errors (gcc) and the symbol
table problem doesn't seem to happen for any other object file.

Any ideas?
