In theory yes.  You'll need to ./configure it with a suitable --prefix
so that when you "make install" it doesn't overwrite your existing

I'm not sure if anyone has ever compiled CVSNT on AIX, I believe that
the way shared libraries work on AIX may mean it is not a simple
compile.  If you get it running please send any patches or build
instructions to cvsnt-dev.  Use build source.

CVS clients work fine with CVSNT server though, but you wont get bug
id's (change sets, though the next release does have a way to conver
messages to bug ids) and mergepoints (which is probably why you want the
CVSNT client).
