AIX 64-bit build.

Gill, Prabhprit (Prabh)
Hi,

I have built a 64-bit version of OpenSSL on AIX 5, and it is failing the
test on bn_sqr.  It looks like the bn_sqr or bn_div functions are not
working for very large numbers.  Has wnyone else ran into this problem?

FYI, I also built a 64-bit version on HPUX 11, but this is working fine.

Thanks.

Has anyone ran into this problem? BN_sqr test failure is mentioned in
FAQ, so that you can bet that some has ran into similar problem:-) Note
that FAQ discusses additional information you're supposed to provide.
Additional to one mentioned in SUPPORT section of README file. Without
this it's quite impossible to tell why it fails in your particular case. A.

Re: AIX 64-bit build.

This is usually caused by configuring/building for the wrong architecture or wordlength first.

make clean doesn't work properly in those circumstances.

either rm -rf include;make clean;Configure, or preferably start with a clean extract.

I've embarassed myself with this one a few times.
