Needed yet another fix to the configure script to get aix4.3.3 really working. The problem was the AR was being passed $objdir, when it should be $output_objdir. The former is a relative path, and we need an absolute path.

From line 5612, my builds/configure script now looks as follows (and works fully on aix4.3.3, gcc3.0.4)

        hardcode_libdir_flag_spec='${wl}-bnolibpath ${wl}-blibpath:$libdir:/usr/lib:/lib'
        # Warning - without using the other run time loading flags, -berok will
        #           link without error, but may produce a broken library.
        # This is a bit strange, but is similar to how AIX traditionally builds
        # it's shared libraries.
        archive_expsym_cmds="\$CC $shared_flag"' -o $output_objdir/$soname $libobjs $deplibs $compiler_flags ${allow_undefined_flag} '"\${wl}$no_entry_flag \${wl}$exp_sym_flag:\$export_symbols"' ~$AR -crlo $output_objdir/$libname$release.a $output_objdir/$soname'

I've finally fixed the build problem with aix 4.3.3, the configure script
has an error.

The problem is in line 5616 of configure. The line was


so it has an unmatched ' which actually gets matched by the ' in the comment
2 lines later.
To fix it, the line needs changing to:


I expect the actual fix will need to be made to the autoconf sources, but
someone else will need to figure out where because my autoconf knowledge is
almost zero.
