The "AIXPlatform" page has been changed by MichaelFelt:

add links to config.layout patches

  = Compiling on AIX =
  == creating an installp package ==
  The latest version 2.2 and 2.4 distributions include a directory ./build/aix with scripts
that will create an installp package. This approach expects you to also download and package
the APR and APR-UTIL packages in advance. Unfortunately, the build/aix scripts are not yet
included in the APR downloads. They are available at
+ Also needed : patches to the APR and APR-UTIL config.layout :
  === Preparations ===
  Preparations: see ''prerequisites'' below as well. One goal of these scripts is to prevent
the need for mixing RPM's from other sources (e.g., perlz and/or AIX Toolbox). Mixing libraries
will sometimes break things when updates are applied. In short, as much as possible - "generic"
BOS AIX is used. To prevent filename collisions /opt/freeware and /usr/local are not used.
Likewise, /usr/lib is not intended as a target directory. (Note: the build/aix scripts check
for the existence of zlib include files and setup links in when they are missing in the places
where ./configure expects them (e.g., /usr/include) - so that you do not need to install a
so-called development RPM. These files are available - just not where configure looks).
