Hi Pablo,

Paolo had already replied the same thing in late 2006, so I wouldn't  
put too much hope in something coming out of IBM anytime soon...

Anyway, I found this message in the archive, giving some related IBM  
email address:

The University of Heidelberg runs their datacenter on AIX (v4.3.3),  
all students have SSH access to such boxes for their homepages. Maybe  
Cetin can be of help trying something out - he managed to get Mono  
compiling on Solaris at their institute.

But note that ppc in general is broken in SVN since the Linear IL merge.
