The "AIXPlatform" page has been changed by EricCovener:

New page:

== prerequisites ==

 * xlc and gcc both are reported to work
 * It's suggested to install the coreutils RPM and be sure /opt/freeware/bin/install is high
in your PATH and found by APR configure for BSD-compatible install.
  * covener believes this might solve failures to install DSO's.
 * Building a recent autoconf, m4, libtool, and zlib (and maybe PCRE?) to some shared prefix
doesn't hurt (e.g. $HOME/gnu)
 * For something long forgotten, adding that prefix to your LIBPATH helps some stage of the
  * export PATH=$HOME/gnu/bin:/opt/freeware/bin:$PATH
  * export LIBPATH=$LIBPATH:$HOME/gnu/
 * Setting CONFIG_SHELL=/usr/bin/bash can speed up ./configure significantly.
 * Old tarballs with an old config.guess/config.sub require AIX 6.1 and later to impersonate
AIX 5.3
  * export ac_cv_build="powerpc-ibm-aix5.3.0.0"
  * export ac_cv_build_alias="powerpc-ibm-aix5.3.0.0"

 * Set both OBJECT_MODE=64 and CC="xlc_r -q64"

== Link errors with bundled expat and when using DESTDIR ==
 * If you use a bundled expat, you might find the link of apr-util fails.  The following change
might help:
  * ''perl -p -i.orig -e  \"s#[&#94; ]$curdir/srclib/apr-util/xml/expat/lib/
-lexpat#; s#[&#94; ];\" $PWD/srclib/apr-util/Makefile''
