Joerg committed some of my patches by rewriting the patches based on my
feedback and his much better knowledge of the pkgsrc framework. You can
discard all old changes in mk/ which resulting from the patches I sent to you.

The -current pkgsrc is suitable for use using xlc on AIX. There 2 things
1) clean up the RPATH
2) adding the bootstrap changes

The first TODO is just for a bit better performance when loading a file and
shorter RPATH etc. - the second needs some additional groundwork in
bootstrap-mk-files, because overwriting the entire file to change some
compiler or tool flags cannot be a solution - it will be become a problem
with the next bootstrap-mk-files update ...

I hope this answers your questions.
