Ack! Perl 5.8.0-RC1 on AIX 5.1.0.0 w/ gcc 3.1 dies

Hi everyone...  This is my first foray into perl5-porters, so go easy 
on me.  =)

I'm trying to compile 5.8.0 RC1 on AIX 5.1.0.0, using gcc 3.1. 
Needless to say, I'm having issues.

The aix hints file bombs Configure right after the compiler test. 
Since IBM has been touting AIX 5'L', I thought I'd try the linux 
hints file, and it worked, with a few tweaks to the command line 
params.

Now, I'm compiling this on an old 43p (100Mhz -- I now know the 
definition of pain) and I get quite far -- but consistently bomb out 
on compiling ODBM_File -- the linker (GNU ld) says it can't find 
-ldbm, even though it finds it in the configure run...

First I thought it was because LD_RUN_PATH was /lib, which none of 
the other module compiles had.  That didn't fix the problem.

I reinstalled libgdbm, but it creates libgdbm.la -- I don't know what 
the difference is -- I'm a neophyte when it comes to this, but I 
really do want to help.  Linking the .a to the .la didn't help.

At the moment, it's recompiling, but I took the requirement for -ldbm 
out of Makefile.PL in ext/ODBM_File.  It compiled cleanly at the 
command line, but I'm not sure what I'm breaking by doing it.

Now for the relevant output.

 From ./Configure -d:
Checking for optional libraries...
No -lsfio.
No -lsocket.
Found -lbind (shared).
No -linet.
Found -lnsl (shared).
No -lnm.
No -lndbm.
Found -lgdbm (shared).
Found -ldbm (shared).
Found -ldb (shared).
No -lmalloc.
Found -ldl (shared).
No -ldld.
Found -lld (shared).
No -lsun.

No -ldir.
Found -lcrypt (shared).
No -lsec.
No -lucb.
No -lBSD.
Found -lPW (shared).
No -lx.
No -lutil.

(See?  It found -ldbm!)

And now, from the compile run...

Now, I haven't found a -lucb for AIX in any of the archives (UCLA, 
UBC's GNU mirror, etc) so I'm not sure if that's the root of my 
problem or not.  When I compile this from scratch (perl 
Makefile.PL;make LINKTYPE=static) it works without any fuss -- 
however, I can't find a way to make it use 'LINKTYPE' in the hints 
file -- it seems the make file is created after the ./Configure and 
make depend is finished, so I don't have a chance to edit it by hand.

I've looked in perlbug for AIX and ODBM_File, and both returned 0 
hits (weird!).

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.  I'm also going to start 
working on a new hints file for Configure for AIX.  Is there a way to 
use config.sh to generate a hints file automagically?

Thanks again.

-JD.

I don't like that. I'd appreciate if you stick with the aix hints file, and
maybe we can help to get that fixed. AIX != Linux

If ODBM is the only odd one out, finish Configure, and disable ODBM extension
(if you run Configue -d, edit config.sh after by hand to disable ODBM) and
show what happens

I tried it with a clean profile, to no avail. It works flawlessly with IE.
