I believe I finally have a (so far) working AIX/pkgsrc system! Only a
few packages have been built, but I seem to have things working for the
time being. A couple of things though...
(1) gcc3-c++ still will NOT build. It keeps re-checking the
configuration ad infinitum. For this reason I have...
... in mk.conf and the gcc4 and g++4 and libstdc++ etc.
rpms from IBM installed.
(2) Trying to build pkglint, I get this strange error.
But I just built perl5.8.8nb4 with no trouble
# bmake package

(3) README.AIX in bootstrap should be updated to reflect that the
pkgsrc compilers aren't the way to go. Use the IBM delivered
rpm packages for gcc etc.
Although I have not tried to re-bootstrap.
mk.conf looks like this...
Any advice at this point would be most helpful. Please also let me know
if I can test anything.
