I see what you are saying now. libpgport is not a shared library -
because of AIX's funny linking, I had not noticed that before.
You propose making it similar to libpq. By that do you mean breaking it
into 2 separate diretories - backend/libpq & interfaces/libpq - so that
we create the libraries pgport and pgport_srv from different directories
- possibly using the existing backend/port and port?
If you mean something else, let me know so that I might persue that
In the mean time, an AIX specific patch(hack) would be to shove -lpgport
into BE_DLLLIB in Makefile.aix - patch attached.
