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 :)

If this is done, then it will be necessary to verify that ar does accept this option. Most likely there are some old AIX versions which do not understand this option.
