I think both patches are working as expected. Had to find the "patched" 8.27 tarball you sent previously to get rid of the missing function.

Test performed on AIX 6.1 (6100-09-08-1642), on NFS filesystem (trying on local filesystem on AIX 5.3, but will probably fail (initially) because of /bin/sh glob issues. Will retry using SHELL=/bin/ksh and "bash-4"

On AIX 5.3 /bin/sh cannot run the tests...

I think our hack of using the wait() status access macros for

The attached avoids the use of WTERMSIG() on AIX.
Perhaps we should do this for all platforms?
