Yes, I've been trying on AIX 4.3.3 and AIX 5.1 both.  On earlier attempts,
results were identical on both, so I've started to assume that there are
no significant OS differences to worry about.  I'll probably be trying it
on AIX 4.3.3 also, just to cover all the bases.

I'm going to try building two separate trees, one with plain R, and the
other strictly for the R shared library.  I think that will avoid some of
my library problems, but the coredump doesn't want to go away, it seems.
