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?
