Whoops (damn, that's twice today), you're right, it's not. I don't know
exactly why it worked when I tried it again, we have a few different
boxes, and they're all configured differently. Anyway, I don't know if
this matters, but I had some environment variables set for a different
project. First was SYSTEM, and I also had CC defined to xlC -+ (admittedly
stupid, but it's fixed now). Anyway, when I fixed up/removed those vars,
things started working fine.
I don't know, I just wish I could retract that first email, nothing's worse
than trying to be helpful and giving out bad info. Oh well.

When I redid everything with the shared extension on, and xim off (cause
it's R5), things seem to be fine.
One thing that *does* still bug though is that, even though everything
builds OK, it fails on make install, because AIX's installbsd has a default
owner of root, and so I had to go explicitly say in all the makefiles,
installbsd -c -o bstempel -g fcs ... instead of just installbsd -c. Is there
any way around this?
Anyway, thanks Owen for the wake up call.
