Recent libtool can build shared libraries on AIX in at least some cases.  It 
will refuse if it can't meet the requirements, however.

| not very good. Does AIX have any support for PAM (or similar)?

IBM has their own setup for this, for which documentation is not easily 
available apparently.  It's a pain in the butt.
