Great! Thanks for information! I did a quick search and it seems that 
it's a common
thing to add -D_ALL_SOURCE in AIX case from configure.in. I did the same 
attached patch). Now you don't need to specify it manually.

And I guess I know what is the problem with shared libraries. In xmlsec 
there are
several constant strings declared in one shared library (xmlsec) and 
used in another
libraries (xmlsec-crypto). On Windows I workaround this problem by just 
strings.c with all shared libraries. Probably the same should be done 
for AIX and
probably for all other platforms. An additional couple dozens KBs is not 
the time spent on it. I need to think about that but it seems more or 
less trivial to do.
