I'd just like to add that we do want to be compatible with and work on AIX as
well. We just might have less users on that platform so sometimes problems
don't get noticed as fast as on the more widely used targets.

Just note that we just released 1.2.9. It might just as well show the same
problem though, I don't know...

As this build failure is for the ssh2_exec program, which is but an example,
the libssh2 library has already been built. You should be able to ignore this
problem, even if we of course would like to get it fixed so that you won't
have to bother about it...
