building boost on AIX 5.3 with gcc4.1 :

./configure --with-libraries=signals,filesystem --prefix=/test/boost
make install

results in a coredump of bjam!

the reason :
the data segment size in /etc/security/limits is per default set
to 262144 blocks ( 512 bytes ) and
in make install bjam uses about 200 MB of memory !

now the malloc in strings.c returns 0 and ....
after increasing the max. data segment size everything works fine.
