With a good deal of healp from some of the experts here,
I have been able to port GAP to an IBM RISC/6000 machine running

They were very simple.
Comment out the lines which defined ulong and ushort
as unsigned long and unsigned short types. AIX already uses
ulong and ushort to indicate these types. (At least it runs

running under AIX. The same set of changes are in the first update.
(BTW, AIX's usage of 'ushort' and 'ulong' is not allowed according to
