Yes, it sounds like you're running on pretty old hardware, and using a
fairly back-level version of AIX 4.3.3.  Maintenance level 2 or 3 maybe.
I'm afraid that IBM has introduced so much new stuff (including bugs) in
some of the recent maintenance level patches that we're probably comparing
apples and oranges here.

If you're interested, you can get the maintenance level by typing:

	instfix -i | grep ML

and look at the last line printed, which should look something like:

	All filesets for 4330-03_AIX_ML were found.

indicating that the machine is at ML03.

By the way, my user has emphasized that they really need the R shared
library.  And if I build with --enable-R-shlib, then chunks of R simply
don't work at all (like the X11 support).  Ah well....
