I've always been one who thinks that things are best fixed by the people
who care about them, and who have access to the means to fix things.

If anyone would like to see better AIX support, please help us out - tell
us what is wrong, tell us how to fix it, and make AIX a better place for
pkgsrc in general.

I know that Joerg has been doing some work in this area, but he's got a lot
on his plate right now. So any help that we could get, in the form of
knowledgeable people, with access to AIX, and the motivation to fix it.

Any help here would be great.
