bash


Bash is a sh-compatible shell that incorporates useful features from the Korn shell (ksh) and C shell (csh).

Compilation (V4.2)

Surprisingly straightforward. Needs libintl, if it's not there, the build uses the one found in lib/intl.
            # AIX 5.3/6.1/7.1, C 8.0/9.0/12.1
./configure --prefix=/tmp/bash-4.2 CC=cc CFLAGS="-O2 -D_LARGE_FILES" --enable-static-link

make clean
make
make install

Installation/Configuration

The aixpdslib version needs (hardcoded ?) /usr/local/lib/libintl.a(libintl.so.3) . Showstopper.
