A couple of comments specific to AIX about the INSTALL file.

Thanks.  I've deleted the stuff about fprnd_t and expanded the other text to

    If you get errors like

     ld: 0711-593 SEVERE ERROR: Symbol C_BSTAT (entry 635) in object 
              The symbol refers to a csect with symbol number 0, which was not
              found. The new symbol cannot be associated with a csect and
              is being ignored.

    this is due to problems with some versions of the IBM assembler.  Try
    compiling with CFLAGS="-g0" as a workaround.  For details and other
    solutions see https://www-304.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=isg1IZ98134 

That seems fine. It will provide the necessary pointers.

Lucily AIX updates are free, even if one has no maintence contract, so if IBM do fix this, it will be quite easy for people to get the updates. (That said, most users of AIX systems will probably have them on contracts - mine just happens to be a rather obscure "home" computer).

A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text.
Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?
