This patch http://code.google.com/p/libdnet/issues/detail?id=23 gave us
a fully working nmap-5.51 on AIX 5.2, 5.3, 6.1 and 7.1.

I had thought that submitting it to libdnet was appropriate, but it
doesn't appear to be that active.

Could you try the latest Subversion release? I recently did a lot of AIX
portability work, including merging a patch that was originally by you.
Here's the CHANGELOG entry for it:

I'll give it a try in the morning, thanks. The biggest change when
packaging 5.51 was realizing that we needed to explicitly pad in
eth_send and that setting sa.sndd_8022_ethertype (even though all the
docs and sample code that I found said to set it) caused bind() to fail,
but setting it to 0 worked.
