Hi,Could anyone share any advice on using autoconf and automake to prepare a distribution tarball that will work on AIX? Normally, I build the tarball on Linux (Debian 5). The AIX users need to be able to use the tarball to build an executable (gmond), a static library (libmetrics) and a bunch of DSOs (e.g. modcpu.so)?
Some AIX users of Ganglia have raised queries about the -berok linker flag in aclocal.m4, and whether it is necessary to patch aclocal.m4 to remove this flag.
We're also trying various other things to improve the AIX support, e.g. adding "-Wl,-bexpfull" to LDFLAGS or GLDFLAGS in various places.
This all comes out of- bug report (Ganglia bug 227) http://bugzilla.ganglia.info/cgi-bin/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=227 - and subsequent email discussion http://www.mail-archive.com/address@hidden/msg05463.html
