Not enough, I suppose.  I might have a look at it eventually, but no

Also the priority isn't that high, since I already have a working GCC
3.4.1 here, it's just that the AIX assembler is so ridiculously slow.
Some ~3000 LOC C++-code takes (when compiled with -O3 and a sufficiently
high -finline-limit) more than 15 minutes to assemble, which is more
than 30 times longer than GNU as.

Thanks anyway!
