I think that I do not need readline, so I will try to recompile --without-readline.
The server is running AIX 5.1 ML 2. Before I recompile I will apply ML 7, thought I already did it.
As this is an old F40 I cannot upgrade to AIX 5.2 or above, so I have to stay on 5.1.
I think there must have been a major change from 8.0.3 to 8.0.4 as I did not notice any problem on 8.0.3.
Thank you for the quick help.
I will tell you whether it worked.

If you pass configure the flag "--without-readline", does gmake check
succeed? If it does and you need readline capabilities in the copy of
psql on your AIX box, there are a few options:
0) use libedit (patching postgres' configure scripts is required
unless readline is removed from the server)
1) installing readline 5.0 and replacing your standard 4.3 build
2) relinking your existing libreadline so that it doesn't export
strncpy and other functions that it shouldn't
3) use an external readline wrapper around the readline-less psql
By the way, which maintenance level is your server at?
