mkoctfile on an AIX platform?

I am trying to port Octave to an IBM machine running AIX 4.3 .
I can get the program to compile and link as a static image,
but I can't get it to build using shared object files. I have several
functions I want to add as a .oct file, and mkoctfile requires the
shared object version.

I saw from the gcc config file comments that the gnu linker is
broken on AIX, and they recommended using the native ld.
AIX evidently treats shared objects differently than most 
unix platforms.

I am not sure if there are there some configuration options
that I need to specify, or if octave just won't build
with dynamic linking on AIX. I have AIX 4.3 and 5.1 
available to me if that matters. I'm using GCC, 
but I could change that if another flavor works better.

Has anyone succeeded in building a dynamic linked version of
Octave on AIX and/or used the mkoctfile command on that
