Hi haubi,

I have tested the new soname linking scheme on AIX 5.2, bootstrapped with
the help of old Prefix(nearly 150 days old) from scratch.

This is realy fantastic! I suppose this is the best practice for soname
under AIX, and best mimics the behavior of runtime linking of GNU monolith.
Everything essential is emerged so smooth that I couldn't even believe
myself using  AIX! The only two issues I encounter were bug
378915<>and bug 378905.

You are creating a  marvel, Micheal. Thanks a ton!

BTW, Perry, give it a try. It worths.
