Hi Wit,

I don't think ECLiPSe has ever been built on an AIX platform, so you 
will need to try to compile ECLiPSe from source for this platform, and 
at the very least, you would need to modify the configure.ac file to add
the platform, and you will need the GNU tool chain (gcc, autoconf, make 
etc.) working on the platform (non-GNU versions of these tools would 
probably require some additional hacking). You therefore probably need 
to be quite familiar with these tools if you want to port ECLiPSe to the 
platform, as you are likely to run into problems during the build that 
requires further modification of the source.

ECLiPSe should be reasonably portable across Un*x platforms, and I think 
AIX is a Un*x variant. There are some hints in the SetupGuide (in 
documents/internal/SetupGuide.doc -- yes, it is in MS Word format) on 
porting ECLiPSe, but you should only attempt porting if you are 
reasonably familiar with compiling and using the GNU tool chain on 
different Un*x platforms.

Cheers,

Kish
