You didn't read the manual, and as a result it failed on AIX because you asked libtool to support semantics unavailable on that platform
*I* didn't ask libtool to do anything. I'm the end-user. I'm not supposed to have know about libtool, or the variations in shared library implementations. Right? Isn't that the whole friggin point?
And if your response is "But there's too many differences, libtool can't hide everything", then we are in 100% agreement. Where we differ is whether or not it's worth the attempt, and whether libtool is the correct direction. So be it. But if you continue to ignore those of us who have problems, and blame the users, well, it will never get better.
