Is there any guidance available on building R on AIX?  Specifically, which C 
compiler to use?  We have AIX XL Fortran version 7.1.1.  We also have AIX 
Visual Age C version 5.0.2.  We also have gcc available.

I have tried building with "cc" (the default AIX compiler) and "gcc".  During
the "make", C compilation in src/library/methods/src completes, and then I 
see this:

mkdir ../../../../library/methods/libs
dumping R code in package `methods'
make: 1254-059 The signal code from the last command is 11.

Apparently the make is running R.bin, which coredumps with a segmentation

Do I need to be using a thread-safe compiler (e.g., "cc_r") for this build?
Any clues at all as to how to get around this?
