Does anyone know if "-m32" is ever needed? (I.e. won't a correctly configured
gcc (hah!) automatically compile for the local architecture?

Volodymyr: what does "uname -m" return on the IBM machine? Can we at least
special-case out the -m32 flag?

As far as I can tell, nab.c does not actually need <fcntl.h>, which I don't
think is part of the ISO standard. But I'm reluctant to change this, since
it hasn't caused problems (except for the non-standard location, fixed above.)

Yannick: can we get rid of all dependence on complex.h!?!

Can you send Wei ( some of the errors? Or maybe someone can
arrange for Wei to get access to an AIX machine. It's not a show-stopper now
to not have IBM Power 5 support, but in the longer term, this would be nice.

Thanks to Volodymyr for carrying out these tests.
