AIX PDSLIB was a huge archive of
freeware for AIX versions 3.2 through 5.3,
originally built and hosted at UCLA .
It was withdrawn in fall 2007.
Although the stuff is rather old by now,
it might still serve as a starter, since pre-built software
for AIX versions 3 and 4 are pretty hard to get by nowadays.
A mirror existed @ computer-refuge ,
which went away as well some time in 2012 or 2013, iirc.
Another one, @ TU Cottbus ,
is no longer available too.
I have an offline mirror of the ftp archive plus some
rescued steering pages.
These will expand into
cd / # into /usr/local
zcat tcp_wrappers.7.6plusipv6.tar.Z | tar -xvf -
Sometimes this is not what you would want, an alternative for example is:
cd /opt/ # into /opt
ln -sf ../bzip2-1.0.2 usr/local
zcat bzip18.104.22.168.tar.Z | tar -xvf -
