It's a bit more than that, the report that led to this patch involved
using the xlc compiler on AIX, and it was a compiler *error*. xlc
also has the "volatile sig_atomic_t" problem for which I don't have a
ready solution, other than suggesting that those that encounter it
delete volatile from the code. I suspect neither problem affects gcc
on AIX.
