Hi Steven,

I've gleaned the critical info from here, but please remember to
include the PROBLEM-REPORT-FORM in the future to ensure all pertinent
information is supplied.

We don't support XL C++ 9, but there's a autoconf build for AIX 5.2,
VAC 6 on the "futures" scoreboard at
http://www.dre.vanderbilt.edu/scoreboard/ace_future.html, named
AIX_5.2_VA6_Debug(autoconf). You can check its details out and see if
you can identify a difference that helps you.

If that doesn't help, I recommend following the "traditional" build
method described in ACE_wrappers/ACE-INSTALL.html. Also, if support
for XL C/C++ 9 were funded, I'd dig into why the autoconf build isn't
working there.

Best regards,
