Did the sander command work? Does AIX give a non-zero value for $? even for
a successful command? Try the following:

    echo $?

If you don't get zero, it's going to be a challenge to get the Amber test
suite running on AIX. The "goto error" syntax we use looks completely kosher
to me. We may need some AIX guru here. As far as I know, none of the Amber
developers has access to an AIX machine, which is why it is no longer
"officially" supported, but we can try to do what we can.
