The primary nonportability in ogg123 is the dependancy on audio
output, actually -- and the HTTP streaming is also a bit of a mess to
do cross-platform (though I just got the insight to look at the SDL
libs to do that; anybody object? actually, while we're at it, why not
SDL as an audio output plugin?) The getopt issue needs to be resolved
in CVS (actually oggenc and ogg123 could use a common getopt, since
they're hanging out together at the moment anyway). See below.

Probably not me (the original author who really, really, really badly
needs to go in and fix some stuff I broke eons ago and haven't had the
time to properly address, if address at all), but if somebody could
get a shell account on your unique system (we speak ssh here in
general), somebody could probably look at the linking issues. Although
I will say that nosing around in an AIX system _would_ be rather fun
