With the above mentioned patch, emacs-21.0.90 built without
incident, runs through all the leim stuff and seems, after
an admittedly cursory examination, to run correctly.

I think the key is to make sure that gcc *IS NOT* in your
path when you configure.  There have been problems building
emacs with gcc on AIX, but it seems to build OK with cc (the
IBM product C compiler).  I know Cygnus/Red Hat have done
some work on the AIX gcc in the last year, but I don't
have the latest and greatest, so I recommend using cc
(both configure and make) to get emacs working.
