I was worried that a script somewhere might try e.g. foo=`which $AR`, but 
setting AR as you say does work around the issue.

Something to consider might be to have Libtool pass -X32_64 ("Processes 
both 32-bit and 64-bit object files") unconditionally to ar(1) on AIX, to 
prevent it from making any distinction between the two object types---and 
make it unnecessary to set AR_FLAGS manually in the first place :)
