Thanks a lot for the reply.

We have IBM(R) XL C/C++ Enterprise Edition V8.0 for AIX(R), Program

I haven't had a chance to look into your suggestion yet; I'm trying to
simply get the libraries compiled without errors first (it will compile if I
don't use the "install" option). It seems that vacpp is a little more
strict about standards than gcc, and I'm getting errors trying to build the
filesystem libraries. I plan to post to the boost user forum about this.

It may be that your suggestion is simple, but I'm somewhat of a novice on
aix, so I need to get help.

But, maybe I should ask this while I'm writing: are there supposed to be 2
equals symbols in the export expression? It may be that someone with more
of a clue would know exactly what you are suggesting, but in case not, I
wanted to make sure.

Thanks again,

Marty Fried
