Thanks. I am familiar with the gcc versus xlc issues on AIX, so it sounds like 
it won't be too much of a problem to get compiled up and packaged. OK, famous

I think our potential deployment also qualifies as small and simple. Since 
there's no official package for RHEL and we'll be building on AIX anyway, we'll 
go for the latest source and trust it too will be stable and useful.
