I think the long loop in "t-exechelp" where it is uses the hard limit of 2147483647 in AIX 6.1 might be addressed so that it uses a reasonable number (i.e. FD_SETSIZE) as a maximum. I don't know if using NPTH would address that.

I am not sure whether I want to fix that.  The problem is a Pth problem and we
will soon drop the requirement for Pth in favor of our new NPTH.  NPTH uses
native threads (e.g. pthreads) but provides an API and semantics simialar to Pth.
