	If I understand correctly, you are configuring and building GCC on
AIX 5.1, not AIX 5.2.  I am not sure to which version of AIX iSeries V5R3
PASE corresponds.  Is there a reason that you explicitly are choosing

	The GCC configuration for AIX 5.2 in GCC 4.0 tries to work around
this problem by adding another declaration of atoll().

	If configuring GCC for AIX 5.2 is a possibility, you might try
that.  Or you could try adding the declaration to
gcc-4.0.0/gcc/config/rs6000/aix51.h, matching the one in aix52.h.

	I am not sure why the declaration did not work.  Was the GCC 3.3.4
you are using to bootstrap built on the same system?  The problem is
caused by using GCC built on AIX 5.1 to bootstrap on AIX 5.2, not
switching from gcc-3.3.4 to gcc-4.0.0.
