Mono on AIX should not be any harder than Mono on linuxppc/Macosx.
The interpreter could be get to run on it with probably just a configure
entry, we just need people to try it, since we don't have access to an
AIX machine.
The ppc JIT can already execute some integer and branch instructions,
though it's not yet usable, but if people are interested in
contributing, the code is in cvs.
