Hi Rainer,
Yes and no,
IBM XL C/C++ continues but gcc 4.2.2 stops due to the -Wall switch...

I know for GCC but you said you were using xlc, right?  :-)
I have tested the build with both compilers gcc 4.2.2 and IBM XL C/C++ 9.0 on AIX 6.1. I am planing to release a rpm package of GUILE for AIX so I have to test the build with
different compilers to decide which produces the best result :-))

When compiling with GCC, you'd have to run `configure' with
`--disable-error-on-warning' to avoid this problem---I'm wondering
whether we should make it the default.

This could avoid some warnings but ... with the warning on the code tends to be cleaner.
and the setting for the extended stack "(debug-set! stack 80000)"
should also be mention.

Ah, so setting it fixed some problem?

BTW, hopefully some of your problems are addressed by the newly-released
1.8.4.  We'll look into the others (e.g., `strftime') for the next

I will test the new 1.8.4 release and I will make detailed notes about all (still ?) needed changes
for AIX 6.1. When I have finished this I will try this on AIX 5.3.

I also can provide build notes for the AIX platform.
Thanks for your report!
