I don't know that but it sounds like a Linux distribution which may have
been patched and thus might not anymore work on other Unix platforms

We are not distributing binaries and binaries for Linux won't work
on AIX.

is the latest version and should build fine on any Unix platform.
Please use 1.4.13 and not the old 1.4.12, we recently found and fixed a
DoS bug.

Note: There is a report that the new IDEA code does don't work on PPC,
thus you may want to use the --disable-idea option:

  ./configure --disable-idea
