Sorry, I'm an AIX anti-guru. We have AIX machines here but I tend to avoid
them. (I have wanted to play with the X-specific programs, but I forget the
commands. Also I used to know about the "extract the manual entries from
the database" program but I forget that command too.)

At least you admitted you're off-topic. (Though it is an interesting
machine and it's unsupported, so that counts for something... but not a
tremendous amount.) Why not ask on the AIX newsgroups too?
