I just checked the latest libtool 1.x (1.5.26) which only has aix[4-9]
patterns, nothing aix5 specific. Another source of trouble could be
autoconf (e.g. config.guess) and automake. Recent versions (2.64 resp.
1.10.2) seem to respect AIX 6 in their script.

I don't have an AIX system at hand at the moment, but last time I build
on AIX 6.1 I was astonished, that they used .a as a suffix for shared
libs. They have two types of shared libs, depending on when symbol
resolution is done.

My notes tell me, that at that time I changed the contents of libtool in
the following way:

hardcode_action=immediate -> hardcode_action=relink
hardcode_direct=yes       -> hardcode_direct=no
hardcode_minus_L=no       -> hardcode_minus_L=yes

I don't remember whether that was actually necessary.
