ok, I found some time to explore this.

I used the below (only partially understanding) to try and have the ./configure work.

I got message about "could not determine ar interface"

I searched and tried and tried more, today I searched for the right term

I found:

That instructed me to use: export AR="/usr/bin/ar -X32_64"

then ./configure worked!!

it took:
real 6m13.436s
user 1m22.514s
sys 0m0.001s

Not sure the make worked:
ld: 0711-781 ERROR: TOC overflow. TOC size: 69208 Maximum size: 65536

real 45m9.513s
user 12m49.324s
sys 0m0.001s

the make error will have to wait for vacation to be over.

(sorry for absence of details. jsut trying some things when I had a few minutes...)

Latest ansatz for a clamav configure invocation:

configure --prefix=/QOpenSys/pkgs --exec-prefix=/QOpenSys/pkgs
--libdir=/QOpenSys/pkgs/lib --disable-check --with-systemdsystemunitdir=no
--sysconfdir=/QOpenSys/etc CFLAGS="-pthread" CPPFLAGS="-pthread"
--with-libcurl=/QOpenSys/pkgs --with-xml=/QOpenSys/pkgs
--with-libjson=/QOpenSys/pkgs --enable-bigstack --disable-unrar

Note the addition of -bbigtoc to the linker flags and --enable-bigstack to
the configure options

That is what I expected.

The RFE requester did specify that they would like ClamAV support as
far back as IBM i 7.1, with a smiley suggesting they realize that part
of the request is much less likely.

As far as I know, it's *possible* to get yum working on 7.1, and thus
have a chance at getting the upcoming ClamAV RPM working. But if
you're still on 7.1, there is a good chance you don't keep up-to-date
with PTFs either, which may cause snags (as I found out at my
workplace before we finally got to 7.3).
