Louis, are you really unreachable (I saw a mail from you last days) or did
you simply turned off an e-mail-address? Could you give some feedback to
this PR please?


Jens - I'm sorry. I've left Berklee and no longer have access to that email address. But this one ( should work for ever.

This PR is ancient (late 2006/early 2007 is when I was having this problem.) IIRC, I was using GCC at the time. The patch/digest problem had been resolved, but there were other problems using gcc. I pretty much ended up holding off with pkgsrc on AIX until I got my old boss to spring for xlC for AIX. That works much much better.

Unfortunately, since leaving Berklee, it also means I no longer have access to an AIX system :(, at least for now.

Please let me know if I can do anything else to help.
