Kerberos on AIX 1.6

This might help.  Saw a few posts when trying to get Kerberos from MIT compiled up on AIX 5.2/5.3

I had a problem with libs – couldn’t find shared libs.  I added this to config/shlib.conf


Its the -brtl that makes the linker see the .so files as well as the .a files.  Dont know why its not added already – but anyway thats what I did.  I also had to load the AIX Berkley Embedded DB package – I just loaded the RPM from the IBM toolbox

Once loaded – the whole thing ran and I was able to use the kinit.c source for an embedded Documentum application to authenticate against an Active Directory.

A bit obscure but it may save you a couple of days getting Kerberos compiled and running on AIX
