build: AIX port #7208
Considering that the gc compiler supports neither PowerPC nor COFF, an AIX port would be a substantial amount of work. I'm not aware of anybody on the core Go team interested in working on this. Unless somebody with a lot of time and skill steps forward, I think support is quite unlikely. It would be much less work to add AIX support to the gccgo compiler. I doubt it works today but I think somebody with some knowledge of the XCOFF object file format could do the port without too much work.
Status changed to LongTerm.
GCC Go v8.1 (go v1.10) has been ported on AIX v7 by my team. Available from BullFreeware web-site.
golang v1.11 is now being ported on AIX 7.2 . The port should be finalized in August/September. It should be available first on BullFreeware web-site.
