Mea culpa. It turned out to be a local modification
that I made that was causing some odd shell behavior.
And that was the cause of the gen-reorder problems.
I'm able to build substantially more software with
pkgsrc on AIX 5.3 now.
I can confirm that I was able to build perl. I
suppose my next task is to figure out why openssl
breaks, as that seems to be a prerequisite for a bunch
of other software that I want to build...
