Thanks Daniel,

I am sorry and admit I didn't give enough of information.
I do understand what are symbols,
that they may be required by one object file,
and provided by an other, or a library.

My configure line was (similar to the one I used with success on HP-UX):

$ ./configure --prefix /vob/tools_AIX \
--with-apr=/vob/tools_AIX/bin/apr-config \
--with-apr-util=/vob/tools_AIX/bin/apu-config \
--with-neon=/vob/tools_AIX --with-ssl

I had in addition to set a CFLAGS environment variable to add an -I path.

I am not very familiar with libtool. Here is the content of the archive
(I show it here to log the information, as I read it myself
--posting via gmane, which forces me to split some lines at 80 chars
boundaries: I add '\'s):

cat ./subversion/libsvn_client/libsvn_client-1.la

I must admit I see nothing special there.
I'll look at the symbols in the objects, with nm.

Thanks again... Back soon.
