AIX doesn't support inter-library dependencies with libtool.  We 
tried this and had to back it out.  I'm waiting for Jeff to give
us a go-ahead (since he vetoed it last time).  IIRC, before the 
vacations started, he was playing with libtool on AIX.  So, we
may make progress on this soonish.  -- justin
