The test is in libgtop/src/daemon/server.c, line 70. I agree that it's not very clean and could be removed from patch if you think it must.

I did that because my development system is an AIX 4.3.3 and my test machine is an AIX 5.1.

Well, it currently breaks the build. Either you wrap it better (more
quotes hey), or drop it. I don't see anything wrong with it otherwise.

- ENABLE_STATIC: with AIX, dynamic and static libraries are the same and called lib<name>.a, so this flag introduces some problems. I think it's better to let libtool to manage this kind of thing

Other than that, could you update the patch against current CVS ? That's
the libgtop-GNOME-2-0-port branch of libgtop.

Sorry, I have no access to CVS...

Not a problem, it applies nearly cleanly, so could be merged once you
have fixed the problem above.

Anybody else having issues with the patch, or will it be OK for me to
merge it once done ?
