[tex-live] TeX Live 2009 powerpc-aix on AIX 5.3 Segmentation fault

It does appear that the TeX Live binaries are built on AIX 4.3 using IBM's
compiler and use the AIX 4.3 C library runtime.

IBM didn't keep backwards compatibility in mind with AIX 5.3.

Has anyone had any luck compiling TeX (pdftex) on AIX 5.3 using gcc?
