Actually, yes! I know, I figured that would never work, but it actually
works fairly well. The only problem I previously reported with the
thread subject "[AIX] subversion failures". However, those are easily
worked around by deleting the offending directories from the portage
tree then restarting the 'emerge --sync'.

Well, I'm certainly no expert on this, but I do work with some fellow
AIX developers that are _THE_ experts on the AIX Linker/Loader. If you
have specific questions or issues you'd like me to look into or get
answers to, please let me know and I'll look into them
