gnupg 1.2.2 on aix 5.1 on P660s and P690s

I did attempt to compile with --disable-asm and it still hung.  I am using 
the AIX compiler (cc) and debugger (dbx).  When I load it into dbx and run 
it, the programs hangs without me being able to get back to type 'where'. 
I am not super familure with dbx/gdb.  Anyone have any suggestions to 
figure out where it's hanging?

There seems to be a problem with these CPUs.  I have a similar report
for Libgcrypt which is based on the GnuPG code.  Lacking access to such
a machine, I can't do very much right now. 

Did you try to build gnupg with

./configure --disable-asm

?  If this works the problem is in the assembler code, we
didn't touched for years.
