[Mono-devel-list] Mono on AIX [Virus checked]

I have indeed not been able to do much on mono recently
though hopefully sometime can get back to it. I didn't get
that far with AIX but did recall hitting these things too
so looked what I had done.

My solution to time.h was to have misc.c just include
both time.h and sys/time.h which should keep all platforms
happy (autoconf checks are another possibility).

For THREAD_* symbols the only clash I hit was THREAD_TERMINATE
and that is indeed not used anywhere. My quick fix
was an ifdef/undef before the mono definition (i.e. we lose the
AIX one if it exists).
