Silly old configure, playing like it doesn't know the size of a char!
What you're looking for, I think, is whether configure even found the
right compiler. I would guess that it tried to compile a little test
program that returns sizeof(char) and failed.
By way of comparison, my system doesn't support gethostbyname_r(3), and my
configure:10568: checking for which type of gethostbyname_r
configure:10600: gcc -o conftest -g -O2 -D_FREETDS_LIBRARY_SOURCE
configure: In function `main':
configure:10653: storage size of `data' isn't known
configure:10603: $? = 1
configure: failed program was:
| #line 10574 "configure"
You should see something like that for sizeof(char).
The answer to your question is, yes, FreeTDS runs on AIX. I don't know
what version. Brian Bruns tested 0.62 before it was released.
If you want to, post the whole config.log or send it to me.
