I want to configure sudo on my 5.3 AIX box but I am having problem:

1. The downloadble for IBM is only for version 5.2.  Will this work?
2. The latest (1.6.9p5) one is a binary which I cannot compile.  No Compliler.

As much as possible, I want ot install the latest one because we are planning to integrate this to LDAP.

You can get a gcc binary from

It is on the AIX 5.2 list, but will work. If you are really adventurous you can use it to compile up the latest gcc sources. You can use gcc to compile the latest sources for sudo.

The AIX 5.2 d/l for sudo from IBM or Bull will also work fine on AIX 5.3.
