You should be able to waitpid() for the process (that is not your own (child)) but I cannot verify this (without writing my own).

To be honest... I do not know. I tried to get valgrind to build on 5.3 and it failed (and I immediately threw in the towel as AIX was not a "supported" platform).

Another option for functions (when using ksh*) is the FPATH variable.
