Hard to say without seeing the complete build log and "config.log",
but using Google there seem to be two main causes for this on AIX
- Somehow the build put in "-G" or "-shared" on the link line
of the "beam" executable.
- "ld" was used to link the final application "beam", this will not
work on AIX. The "gcc" or "xlc_r" command should be used for
linking, as it "knows things" about runtime library dependencies,
entry points etc that a plain "ld" has no idea about.
The problem with using "ld" is described at page 73 in
