    This is Nassim, system administrator at the Center for Advanced Mathematical
  Sciences at the American University of Beirut.

  I am currently installing gsl-1.7 on our IBM cluster with an AIX5.1
  operating system as it is needed by the Gadget2.0 library. While compiling
  gsl-1.7 I got the following error.

  gcc: installation problem, cannot exec
'/usr/bin/../lib/gcc-lib/powerpc-ibm-aix5.1.0.0/2.9-aix51-020209/collect2': arg
list too long

 After investigating it I found that the command line size of the shell in
 AIX-5.1 is 24kb. As you know, while gsl Makefile tries to create its
 executable file it fails due to the high number of object files to be linked.

 One of the proposed solution listed on is to
 use a manual approach to incrementally combining the object files
 in smaller groups.

   How can I split the object files in smaller groups and compile them

 Thank you in advance for any help.
