I have tested with native compilers on six different platforms, and
get lot's of warnings (mostly prototype/argument mismatches).

Too many errors to send to the list, so I have put the results here:

The tar has one directory for each platform tested.  Each directory
contains config.* from each configure, results of make >& make.out, a
file "VERSIONS" with version information from cc and make, and uname
with the output from "uname -a".  Enjoy.

On AIX configure seemed to work fine and exited with status 0, but it
didn't create a Makefile or config.h!  config.log and config.status
are included in the tarball.

AUTH_FAIL_MAX 6 is too low in some cases.  A simple fix is to increase
the value.  I have explained the bug here:
