That's correct.

This and the preceding warnings suggest that the version of your C
compiler somehow does not agree with the version of the rest of your
system (or maybe there's another inconsistency in versions of installed
software).

Are you able to compile other non-trivial programs with this setup?

I have not.

There are two options:

1. Install the proper version of XL C for your version of AIX, then try
"make clean aix-ppc32" again.

2. Install gcc instead of XL C, then try "make clean generic".

Either way, please let john-users know of your results.

Even if everything compiles, but there are any compiler warnings, I'd
appreciate a copy of the complete build log such that I can fix the
causes of the warnings (except for those which relate to problems with
the compiler setup).

Thanks,
