Thanks! I have successfully compiled tmux on my AIX 7.1 machine . Here's a run down of what needs to be done:
1. Download latest tmux source code from github:
git is available from the AIX Toolbox. The best way to install is to set up yum. I can help if you get into trouble here.
2. Download the dependency libevent:
3. Patch libevent code using the following diff (using patch command or by hand):
4. Compile libevent:
Note that my version of AIX has an issue with the as assembler which requires the CFLAGS="-g0" CXXFLAGS="-g0" flags. If your OS is fully up to date at the latest TL then it should not be necessary (please test first without the flags, and if it works I'd appreciate a post with the oslevel -s output).
6. Install (using yum) the following tmux dependencies: automake, pkg-config, bison (for yacc). Then add /usr/linux/bin to PATH. To test your path run
5. Patch tmux code using the following diffs:
In the above we are simple renaming the variable lines to newlines to avoid a conflict.
6. Build tmux:
Once again, please test first without the CFLAGS="-g0" CXXFLAGS="-g0" flags.
7. tmux requires the UTF-8 locale. You can install it from the AIX install DVD 1 using:
Assuming you have mounted the DVD on /cdmnt. Next set the locale in your shell:
Check using the locale command.
The install is now complete. Please read the next post for information about how to use 256 colours.

Ok, tmux is now installed and running! Let's make it beautiful
1. Set terminal to 256 colour mode by setting TERM in your shell:
2. The IBM supplied terminfo settings for xterm-256color (use infocmp xterm-256color to view it) are missing the the entries for the setab and setaf features, which tell the terminal how to set background and foreground colours, respectively. Run man terminfo and search for setb, setf. Running tmux info inside a tmux session will show the missing entries. This is fixed by the following code in .tmux.conf:
Now you should have 256 colours. I am attaching my .tmux.conf as an example.

FYI, I talked with the tmux developer, Nicholas, and intend to support tmux development on AIX since he does not have access to an AIX box. Right now there is no official support for AIX and I hope to improve on that
I'm currently working on fixing a couple of small issues.
