Hehe. That's a rather nice "David-and-Goliath" image. The Libretto is
215x125x25 mm, right?

Seriously, though: people have previously gotten around the Alpha/OSF
problems. Something about getting the ieee setting right - look through
the back archives of R-devel and R-help (better you than me....).

I don't recall anyone having pains with AIX before, but obviously
you're missing the definition of fd_set, which generally happens in
<sys/select.h>. I'd go searching in the include files for it.
something like

find /usr/include -name '*.h' | xargs grep fd_set


find /usr/include -name '*.h' -exec grep fd_set {} /dev/null  \;
