I like what you did with libtool (or is it in libtool-2.4.6 and doing this automagically) - namely creating a new $prefix/lib/libiconv.a with copies of the existing AIX legacy libiconv.a members (shr.o, shr4.o (32-bit) and shr_64.o (64-bit)).

There is a danger for packagers - as myself: the new archive gets the shr*.o file of the packaging system and not necessarily one as new as the system the pre-packaged version gets installed on.

IMPORTANT: this is much better than before!

Before in "%post" install scripts the AIX legacy members get appended - now they will be updated and position is preserved.

Just took me a while to find what was happening (guess I should have looked for the CHANGELOG first :) )
