See the NEWS below for more details.
Just want to add - that building and packaging - no issues (one warning
message only).

However, cannot run "make check" as this fails with:

address@hidden:[/data/prj/gnu/coreutils-8.29]make  V=1 check-TESTS
/bin/sh: not found

make: 1254-004 The error code from the last command is 1.

Happy and Healthy 2018!!
Another issue with AIX make?
Note we've documented in README for this release that
gmake is preferred for AIX. Can you try that?

The problem is AIX 5.3 make - gmake brought me further - and gave a better error message:


make[4]: Entering directory '/data/prj/gnu/coreutils-8.29'
make[4]: execvp: /bin/sh: Arg list too long

On AIX 6.1

/usr/bin/make check is progressing normally. Sorry for the 'noise'.
