I would recommend that.  As I said, gcc is relatively easy to
install.  I followed the info provided and didn't run into any
problems. (That's status from last summer, I don't think that this
changed.)  And yes, you don't want to mix gcc with xlf.
Don't get another 'gcc package'.  Download the source tarball from
gnu.org (or a mirror).  Side benefit: we'll know  what compilers you
use, I possibly can reproduce your problems on my AIX box (if any remain).
