The configure scripts assign ".a" to SHLIBVEXT and SHLIBEXT for "aix"
architecture. Don't know the reasoning behind this, but the distribution
won't build properly with GNU make, when SHLIBEXT and STLIBEXT are the same,
it tries to build SHLIB when STLIB is intended.

Since GNU make is better able to get the intended effect from the makefiles'
VPATHs, it's not just random coincidence that I used it.

Build on AIX with GNU make.

Replace all such instances of .a with .so.

Old PR; fixed in 1.2.2, at least.
