In part, my proposal is intended to generate the same library combinations as
the 1.4.2 release does.  It merely adds a .so to that set under
--enable-shared (which is the default).  At worst, this'll affect
applications that subsequently get relinked using the non-default -brtl
option of AIX's ld(1) (causing it to prefer a ".so" over a ".a").  Thus I see
little harm in extending this to all AIXen.

However, I'll let you people decide...

I attach an implementation of this proposal, against both the 1.4.2 release
and the 20050928 snapshot, but only for AIX 5.3.  Changelogs included.

To handle the (default) --disable-static and --enable-shared case, where both
a shared archive (.a) and a shared object (.so) are to be generated, I
generalised the building of static archives to optionally handle versioning
and introduced a MAKE_STLIB_COMMAND variable.  Thus, under --disable-static,
I re-use the static library build scheme to instead generate the ".so".

Also, with these changes, krb5_force_static now needs to be set, if at all,
before src/config/shlib.conf is sourced by configure scripts.

I have again elected to not touch this one.
