Sendmail 8.13.4 and AIX 5.3

I just set up an AIX 5.3 system and I'm trying to install sendmail
8.13.4. So far its been a non-starter. Before I go crazy, I noticed
that there doesn't seem to be an OSTYPE for AIX 5.3. Can sendmail
8.13.4 run on AIX 5.3 yet?

If its not an AIC 5.3 issue.... Its been awhile since I've installed
sendmail from scratch, can anyone give me a pointer or two?

AFAIK: yes.  Some fixes for 64 bit mode etc went into 8.13.4 as
you can see in the release notes.

Maybe you can share the error(s) you encountered?

I go into the source top directory, type "Build" and here is what I
get. (Hope its readable.)

Thanks

Please try this:

cd devtools/OS
sed -e 's/_AIX5=50200/_AIX5=50300/' AIX.5.2 > AIX.5.3
cd ../..
rm -rf obj.AIX*
../Build

That did the trick. Thanks for the help.
