Actually, that's what I thought.. I originally toyed with the idea of 
fixing the underlying code to be more compliant and therefore kill off
the complaint messages -- however, I quickly realized that it would take
a fair effort to do so, hence my "easy" change.. This change does not fix
ALL of the messages, but it does appear to kill off about 10%.. However,
of the two fixes that you all are targetting for the bit-bucket, this one
is much less important to me than the change to the link args.. I will
be patient however and wait for someone else that uses AIX.. Perhaps my
development environment is a bit different then theirs is.. Currently,
our compiler (VisualAge C++ v5), is unpatched and approx. 2 years old.  We
will be probably applying a bunch of patches shortly and perhaps that will
help things..
