I think GNU nm has the same behaviour on every platform (linux, solaris,
hp, and so on).
I want to use libtool on AIX with native AIX nm that hasn't the same
Libtool has been developed for GNU nm, so if I want to use AIX nm, I
need to pass good arguments to have same behaviour as GNU nm.
I can't test only GNU nm or not because I don't know how acts nm on
solaris, hp or other.
So I test "AIX", if AIX I know "special case !", and to be sure I test
it's not GNU nm (because it can be installed instead of native AIX nm)
