Thank you, was just fine!

This is interesting: I've built openssh-5.5_p1-r2 just fine here
on both AIX 5.3 and 6.1, however without any USE-flags.

Good to know: I've just found a problem with zlib, which is built without
SONAME emulation again. Fixing this will break binaries linked against
libz.so, so you'll best start over once I've sorted it out.
Additionally, I'd like to add some help into ld-wrapper to get at least
some chance for a workaround to drop the technical need to always start
over in such cases.
I'll tell again once this is done.
Remember to self: It still has to be discussed with libtool upstream which
variant of SONAME emulation to finally choose, also to report consistent
aix-patches to upstreams of packages not using libtool (like zlib).
