Hi everybody,

the attached patch has been tested with maint @ 33128.
it should apply to blead with no change
as hints/aix_4.sh is the same for blead and maint.
(it's the result I get from perlbrowse)

http://public.activestate.com/cgi-bin/perlbrowse/f///depot/maint-5.8/perl/hints/aix_4.sh

The problem solved is the same as the one reported here

http://www.xray.mpe.mpg.de/mailing-lists/perl5-porters/2007-12/msg00487.html

When running "make test", only one test fails :)

Failed 1 test out of 1075, 99.91% okay.
        ../ext/POSIX/t/sigaction.t

it is the same test that fails on aix 4.2 since I reported it back in
January 2006 !

http://www.xray.mpe.mpg.de/mailing-lists/perl5-porters/2006-01/msg01124.html

when run individually, I get

not ok 30 - SA_SIGINFO got right signal
#   Failed test 'SA_SIGINFO got right signal'
#   at ../ext/POSIX/t/sigaction.t line 201.
#          got: undef
#     expected: '1'

Do you have any clue on how to solve this problem ?

Maybe a C program to test if this feature is not broken on this
platform ?

Thanks to Jarkko for reminding users of exotic platforms ;)

Regards,

José A-E
