OK, I'll bite... I never tested the plugins on AIX, was happy enough that the rest worked.

Will see that I can get this worked in - you don't happen to have a patch ready so I just need to review and merge?

I tried building on AIX without --disable-plugins, and I can't even link anything

/bin/sh ../../../libtool --mode=link --tag=CC gcc -I../../../../git/include -I/gnu/openssl/include -g -O2 -o -rpath /usr/local/lib/openvpn/plugins -export-symbols "../../../../git/src/plugins/auth-pam/auth-pam.exports" -module -shared -avoid-version -no-undefined auth-pam.lo pamdl.lo -lpam
libtool: link: can not build a shared library
libtool: link: See the libtool documentation for more information.
libtool: link: Fatal configuration error.

so... what exactly did you do to get to the point of not having daemon()?

Hrmph, posted a longer answer, trac ate it... I'm not sure I'm properly reproducing it - I can link by using libtool-2.4.6, but I can not see an error.

Could you please explain in more detail what you do, and where you see the error? Is this a build error, or when trying to run openvpn?
