I could get bmake to build through my earlier hack. this script 
generatea  a directry in /tmp/nbbmake<key> and places all the .o files 
there. then it does a cc -o nbmake & deletes the directory (and probably 
the binary too). can you help me progress beyond this pt?

pl. see
Item (1) still needs to be patched up after #include <ar.h>. the rest of 
it is ok.

also, in one of the header files the bit field is declared as follows:-
short field1:8,
this generates compiler error. the patch to this on AIX is:-
short field1:8;
short field2:8;
