This made it to my sent-mail, but I never saw it posted. So, in case this
got lost, here's my repeated request for hints.

Subject: xaLeap make fails on AIX

I'm having trouble making xaLeap for AIX. I found an archived message from
Bill Ross describing exactly the trouble I'm having -- see below.

However, the recommendation is to "fix Imake.conf, as described in
amber6/src/leap/0README". However "grep Imake.conf 0README" produces

Can someone describe the fix for me?

Many thanks.

P.S. There seems to be some confusion about amber7/src/leap vs.
amber7/src/leap/src/leap in the 0README, too.

        We are trying to compile Amber 6.0 on our IBM RS/6000 SP system.
        However, we continue to get the error message given below after
        about 10 minutes of compilation.
        This is the end of the logfile from make:
        [...] stuff deleted
                rm -f utilMakeHelp
(This shows that Leap is the module being compiled.)
                cc_r -o utilMakeHelp -g -DMEMORY_DEBUG=0 -I..
                        -bnso -bI:/lib/syscalls.exp basics.o ...
                        ` ` -liconv -lIM -bI:/usr/lpp/X11/bin/smt.exp

These can probably be ignored.
        ld: 0711-345 Use the -bloadmap or -bnoquiet option to
                        obtain more information.
This is a clue for diagnosis - one could add these flags
in leap/src/leap/Makefile, however the problem is clear:
        ld: 0711-317 ERROR: Undefined symbol: thread_unlock
        ld: 0711-317 ERROR: Undefined symbol: thread_waitact
All this thread stuff is being added by the setup of the
X-windows compilation configuration - probably a single
unnecessary library is being specified that requires another
one concerning threads that is not given. Have your sysadmin
or vendor fix the xmkmf config file, Imake.conf, described in
