Install sudo on AIX 5.3

I'm trying to install sudo on AIX 5.3. I don't have a compiler on my machine, so I was trying to find a binary. The one found at that is supposed to work for 5.3 even though it was compiled on 5.2. The issue is I'm new to AIX and could not figure out how to install the sudo- file.

Use "smit" to install the package.

On AIX most admin tasks can be done with smit and it really does assist.

Thanks. I found installation instructions using smit here:

Instructions for installing

and it installed to /usr/local/bin.

You do not have to settel for SUDo as the only way to do this

You can use AIX build in security and clever scriptsing to allow tasks
via a menu system

or new features avalible in AIX to allow rolebase Role Based Access Control(rback) that can be used
