Works great on AIX!

Last time I used it there (2002), the only drawback was that if your  
DHCP server was multihomed and you had clients on multiple of the  
directly-attached subnets, the server couldn't tell which one a  
request came from so it couldn't serve addresses properly.  But you  
can easily change your topology to work around that quirk; and  
someone may have completed a port to the DLPI low-layer driver by  
now, which should solve that problem.
