Yes. I have no reports of anyone using cvs 1.11.x under AIX 5L and it is
not currently in any of the test beds.

If you really care, then I suggest you ask the vendor to test it for you
and submit problems reports and/or bug fixes to address@hidden for

I have never worked with AIX 5L myself. However, a quick look for POSIX
and AIX 5L shows that AIX 5L is supposed implement POSIX 1003.1-1996
which should be good enough for our GNULIB system to figure out how to
do the things it needs to do.

I would urge you to do a full configure and 'make check' on the system
to see if it passes all of the regression tests or not.

Feel free to report your results to the address@hidden list as I am
sure they will be interested to know if it works for you or not.

        Good luck,
