Nope, upgrading mysql caused the problem :-
3.22.20a - libtool 1.2 - works under AIX 4.1/4.2
3.22.23 - libtool 1.3 - doesn't work under AIX 4.1/4.2 (at least with
So the solution is to downgrade :-( or copy ltmain.sh/ltconfig from an
older mysql and fixing a couple of places in mysql configure.
Note; none of the mysql developers have answered so I don't really
know what to say as a good solution. It looks like most people running
AIX and mysql have upgraded to AIX 4.3. We are moving over to linux in
the future so it won't be a problem.
Perhaps a note in the manual :-
AIX 4.1/4.2 and versions of mysql after 3.22.26a cause problems, at
least using dynamic linking. AIX 4.3 may work but nobody has whether
it does or not; static linking may also be a solution. One person got
3.22.26a and later working by coping ltmain.sh/ltconfig from libtool
1.2 (or a version of mysql earlier than 3.22.23), hacking configure to
remove options to ltconfig calls.
Anyway, seeing as AIX 4.2/4.1 are getting old I would suggest not
worrying to much about it. At least the messages are in the archive.
Thanks for the reply,
