That's too bad, it worked for us on AIX 5.3. Are you using a vacpp
built bjam or a gcc bjam?

I could be mistaken but I think we've dumped our AIX machines so I'm
no longer able to debug this for you. I'll check around and see if
we've still got access to an AIX box. I do wish you had mentioned
this a few years ago when I first did this work..
