bug#29946: no -A argument for 'tr' generates an error message whenever the AIX command "lslpp -L" is used (AIX 6.1 and later).

So I suggest lslpp hardcodes /usr/bin/tr
or better again uses LC_ALL, LC_COLLATE=C etc.
to enforce working in ASCII mode.
I am just a messenger.
And used frequently. it is the equivalent of rpm -qa (in fact it is
supposed to call rpm, but that might be failing - the second error
message - because tr is failing)
lslpp is AIX-specific, so it can assume AIX-specific extensions to tr.
How about if we make 'tr -A' compatible with AIX practice? It would
make for one less objection to using coreutils on AIX, and it
shouldn't be hard to add.
That would be ideal :)
