Actually, you can get the support if you compile 6.1 from source and
pass -DHAS_AIX5_PERFLIB to aimk. Patching the code to the 6.0 source
tree should also be straightforward.


The reason why it is not enabled in the pre-compiled binary on the
project page is that it's not sure whether libperfstat.a is available
on all the AIX 5.x versions. But at least it's available on my 5.2

> lslpp -w /usr/lib/libperfstat.a
 File                                        Fileset               Type
                                       bos.perf.libperfstat        File

The advantage of using libperfstat API to get the load and memory info
is that users won't need to install the IBM load sensor after initial
installation. Also, execd could start as non-root but it is a less
major issue since most sites start SGE daemons as root anyways.
