AIUI - libnbcompat is the answer to this. So how to implement that globally
for pkgsrc? Any help would be great.

AFAIK, all you need to do here is to add

USE_FEATURES+=	asprintf

to the Makefile of the package in question

Although if AIX has asprintf but not vasprintf we'll need to deal with
that in infrastructure.

I was afraid of this answer! I did try it, though and there's no difference in the build. I've set "USE_FEATURES" and "MISSING_FEATURES" but it seems to be ignored.

Now I just noticed something when looking at this message...

   ld: 0706-027 The -R /opt/pkg/lib flag is ignored.

Bootstrap apparently didn't create an /opt/pkg/lib!! It's just not there. Hmm... I probably have to go back to the bootstrap at this point.

Thanks for looking.
