AIX is not an actively supported platform and I have no plans to 
increase support for it.  I am happy to review and merge pull requests 
to fix AIX issues if they don't add too much complexity.

The last pull request to mention AIX was

unfixed, which can likely be worked around by configuring with 

The last RT ticket to mention AIX was 
https://krbdev.mit.edu/rt/Ticket/Display.html?id=8632 .  Per that ticket 
I believe the internal test suite doesn't pass on AIX.
