Install libtool and grep on AIX 5.3

I need to install libtool. I am using rpms to install my libtool.  But I get dependencies errors.

# rpm -Uvh libtool-1.5.26-1.aix5.1.ppc.rpm
error: failed dependencies:
            grep is needed by libtool-1.5.26-1
*** So, I go to install grep
# rpm -Uvh grep-2.5.4-1.aix5.1.ppc.rpm
error: failed dependencies:
             libintl.a(libintl.so.8) is needed by grep-2.5.4-1
*** I searched my system and cannot find libintl.so.8.  Also, looked online and cannot find a source for libintl.so.8.  What do I need to do to get this dependencies taken care of??

Thank you

libintl is part of iconv which in turn needs also gettext.

Hi again,
simply install gettext, which provides libintl. gettext in turn needs libiconv, which should be installed on your system, as it comes with AIX. It is part of bos.rte.iconv. If it's not already installed, get it from standard AIX distribution media.
Check if it's there with lslpp -l | grep iconv

Find gettext here:

Good luck!

Cheers
