To my knowledge, you are the first one trying out Erlang on modern
AIX's. I remember porting Erlang to aix some 7-8 years ago, but since
then I don't think anybody has ever run Erlang on aix.

Thus, a number of unknown troubles may oocur there, however ..

These arror messages are due to a lacking ssl application.

Here's the story on ssl (as I know it)
1. The OTP team did an ssl implementation.
2. The implemenation is open source.
3. It cannot be exported out of Sweden without knowing which country it's
   going to.
4. Swedish law lists some 139 counties where it is ok to export.
5. www access goes to more than those 139 counties.

So, in order to get the ssl application we need to get it some other way,
like walking into the OTP office with or DAT tape or something,
I dont know.

Nevertheless, the above error can be safely ignored since 
they are just related to  ssl.

Weird thing though, I dont get the above error messages from 
configure on FreeBSD and Linux ??
