Thanks Peter,

OK. Thanks.

I had got this impression from inspecting the contents of some .lo files, e.g.

$ cat ./subversion/libsvn_client/blame.lo
# subversion/libsvn_client/blame.lo - a libtool object file
# Generated by ltmain.sh - GNU libtool 1.5.22 (1.1220.2.365 2005/12/18 22:14:06)
#
# Please DO NOT delete this file!
# It is necessary for linking the library.

# Name of the PIC object.
pic_object='.libs/blame.o'

# Name of the non-PIC object.
non_pic_object='blame.o'

But this could just reinforce your statement below:

Now, I had managed to build svn 1.3.2 on AIX -- without the support for
ssl. So, it wasn't *that* broken.

Also, I had found (http://svn.haxx.se/dev/archive-2004-01/0922.shtml)
an allegation about the need to use an option such as -qlanglvl=extended
while building with xlc, and I didn't notice any effect.
