It should indeed.

I'm not clear on how to read the output from the smoke test. Is DB_File
failing in *all* the configuration combinations for AIX 4.3? Also, is test
79 the only test that fails or does the smoke test only report the first

Oh yea, what version of Berkeley DB is running on the AIX box. There are a
few versions of Berkeley DB kicking about that have problems. Here is a
one-liner that should tell you.

    perl -e 'use DB_File; print "Berkeley DB ver $DB_File::db_ver\n"'
