I had seen that post you mentioned and already tested the -lbsd without success.

wait4 is not even present in libbsd.

phenix:~$ nm /usr/lib/libbsd.a  | grep wait

Maybe it was present on older versions of the system. But I couldn't find any documentation mentioning wait4 and -lbsd anywhere.

Actually wait4 is never mentioned in the IBM documentation concerning AIX.

wait4 without WNOHANG works fine. waitpid works fine even with WNOHANG.
I don't know which workaround is the better.
I will also try to report this bug to IBM so that a future version of AIX could work correctly.
