In case you are interested..
AIX 6.1 and 7.1 stop at the same point, but get there MUCH faster. I started 
the AIX 5.3 make test even before I started the builds on AIX 6.1 and 7.1,

AIX 5.3 is still showing:
warning: if the text of an error message concerning `redir1.*' not being
warning: found or messages concerning bad file descriptors produce diff
warning: output, please do not consider it a test failure

while AIX 6.1 and AIX 7.1 have already "make error" status.

FYI (who really cares about AIX 5.3 these days :p )
