It may be handy for you to know what sorts of things we have found
useful to compile and install in addition to PostgreSQL on AIX:

1. GNU readline 5.0
2. zlib 1.2.1
3. GNU Make 3.8.0
4. m4 1.4
5. GNU flex 2.5.4
6. GNU Bison 1.875

I can't warrant that that is all you'll ever need, but it will
probably do for now...
