I should probably mention that I needed to port jansson and cmocka to AIX.   (Also needed  a current cmake in order to build cmocka).    I believe you can disable the former using --without-json, but I see no mention of cmocka in your dependency list.    I haven't check lately to see when and where it's required.   Is it only developer mode?

    We know it can be found on major Linux distributions because we test
