        Good... Now, my new step will be discover how can I do if-filter run
smoothly over AIX.

        Well, we're thinking about build a transparent proxy; but we already
have squid-1.1.22 running with no problems over our AIX machine (compiled using
gcc). Yes, it isn't yet a heavy loaded cache, but until now everything is
        Again, thanks alot your attention... I'll remember your advice on do not
use gcc when we start to think about async-io.
