Discussion:
$LD for 64-bit compilations on AIX

Raw Message
On AIX, when compiling in 64-bit mode (e.g. with CC="gcc -maix64" AR="ar -X 64")
the AC_LIB_PROG_LD macro should find out the linker to use with $CC. It
finds LD="/usr/bin/ld", which does not work:

/usr/bin/ld -r -o lisp.o spvw.o spvwtabf.o spvwtabs.o spvwtabo.o eval.o control.o encoding.o pathname.o stream.o socket.o io.o funarg.o array.o hashtabl.o list.o package.o record.o weak.o sequence.o charstrg.o debug.o error.o misc.o time.o predtype.o symbol.o lisparit.o i18n.o unixaux.o built.o
ld: 0711-736 ERROR: Input file spvw.o:
XCOFF64 object files are not allowed in 32-bit mode.

The correct result ought to be "/usr/bin/ld -b64".

This fixes it.


2017-03-05 Bruno Haible <***@clisp.org>

Fix value of LD for 64-bit compilers on AIX.
* m4/lib-ld.m4 (AC_LIB_PROG_LD): For 64-bit compilers on AIX
("gcc -maix64" and "xlc -q64"), add option -b64 to $LD.
