We were able to build 1_33_1 successfully after a lot of grief, I'm told.
Now I'm trying to build 1_34_1. I was successful building on Windows, and
Red Hat linux, so I was feeling fairly confident for aix. :-)

I built bjam with no problems, both with gcc (by mistake), then xlC. I was
told gcc did not work and I should use xlC.

When I try to build the libraries using the vacpp and install option, I get
a segmentation fault within about 1 minute. I got this both when I used the
defaults (gcc was picked), and when I reinstalled and used vacpp.

Next, I used the stage option, and I don't get the core dumps. I let it run
overnight, and today, xlCentry was stalled after running 681 minutes. So, I
killed it and let it continue. It stalled a couple more times, and finally
finished with a bunch of bash errors, and I have about 75 files in the
stage/lib directory. I don't see some, such as filesystem, so I'm not sure
if I have a good build.

I'm definitely not an expert, especially not on aix, so don't assume I know
what I'm doing, but I'm hoping to get some help from the list, and then get
help from our administrators to get it built.

I'd appreciate any help you can offer. I did a few screen captures along
the way, so I have a lot of information, if needed.
