I don't think it is (at least, it didn't when I tried to build coreutils on AIX 5.1). My AIX machine is (supposedly) unavailable at the moment but I will probably investigate why -qlanglvl=*c99 is not being used when I get a chance.

It's not an issue on AIX 5.1 because 5.2+ introduced va_copy in

I wasn't talking about va_copy, I was talking about the general problem of configure not figuring out to use -qlanglvl=*c99. This *is* an issue for coreutils on AIX 5.1 (because otherwise one must use the c99-to-c89 patch when there is a c99 compiler available). We have the same underlying problem, with two completely different causes.

Clearer? :-)
