Prefix on AIX
 
Hi Perry,

with svn-trunk of prefix-launcher and the next prefix-tree snapshot,
you most likely should be able to get a working Prefix on AIX.

Hi,

I hope you had a nice vacation. I didn't want to start asking for help too soon. I don't want to wear out my welcome.

I poked at what I have. Got past a few issues and got up to building ssh and died with:

ld: 0711-317 ERROR: Undefined symbol: .EVP_des_cbc
ld: 0711-317 ERROR: Undefined symbol: .EVP_md5
ld: 0711-317 ERROR: Undefined symbol: .EVP_aes_128_cbc

I haven't played with it for a couple of weeks now. This last email from you kinda sounded like things were in the works.

I'm willing to start completely over is that will save the two of us grief.

Let me know your suggestions. I'm not in a big hurry at all.

Thank you for your time and efforts
Perry

Thank you, was just fine!

This is interesting: I've built openssh-5.5_p1-r2 just fine here
on both AIX 5.3 and 6.1, however without any USE-flags.

Good to know: I've just found a problem with zlib, which is built without
SONAME emulation again. Fixing this will break binaries linked against
libz.so, so you'll best start over once I've sorted it out.

Additionally, I'd like to add some help into ld-wrapper to get at least
some chance for a workaround to drop the technical need to always start
over in such cases.

I'll tell again once this is done.

Remember to self: It still has to be discussed with libtool upstream which
variant of SONAME emulation to finally choose, also to report consistent
aix-patches to upstreams of packages not using libtool (like zlib).
