if I can get it to run on AIX.

Thanks- Brian

Something is wrong with the detection of a working mmap or we are
using it wrongly in gpg.  Malloc is used as a fallback.

The problem _might_ be that MAP_ANONYMOUS is not supported nut defined
in the header file.  An strace should help to investigate this.

Did it work with 1.0.6?
