I have answered this twice, but still do not see it.

A) I am an AIX expert, not an R expert. I am willing to assist, 
longish-term for matters re: R on AIX.

B) If I fix something (e.g., the suggestions in the bug-reports, in 
particular for configure.ac related "stuff" - how do I submit a patch? 
(Did not find anything suitable in R-forge.)

C) Bug 16633 - https://bugs.r-project.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=16633 
is all platforms, not just AIX. And I am not attempting to fix it on my 
own, because there is an architectural element involved (namely, does 
the library, or libR own the symbol.


p.s. Duncan, maybe my previous replies were to you only - my mistake and 
please forgive the double emails.
