[stunnel-users] Stunnel 5.17 builds, 5.18 does not - AIX 6.1 - pod2man does not accept "-v"

I was able to build Stunnel 5.17 on AIX 6.1 using the "build" command,
after completely removing the entire section for "-fstack-protector" in
"configure" (my "stunnel-5.17.patch" file below). I used the following

mkdir $HOME/stunnel-bin-5.17
gzip -dc stunnel-5.17.tar.gz | tar xvf -
patch -p0 <stunnel-5.17.patch
cd stunnel-5.17
chmod 755 configure; ./configure --prefix=$HOME/stunnel-bin-5.17
make; make install

However, for 5.18, those same commands (and patch file) no longer result in
a successful compile due to AIX 6.1 not accepting the "-u" (Unicode) for
pod2man. I looked into 5.17 and it looks like the same Makefiles are used
in both (doc/Makefile.in and doc/Makefile.am) so perhaps the top-level
Makefile for 5.18 adds the ".pod.8" file to the build process. Removing the
"-u" in both files enables the build to complete.

I just tested against Stunnel 5.19 but it looks like the step that ran
"pod2html" was skipped by default (i.e., just "make") so I am able to
compile stunnel correctly. Thanks for fixing this in Stunnel 5.19! For
those that need the .pod.8 man pages on AIX 6.1, you'll need to remove the
"-u" in the pod2man command.
