May I ask which client you use? They only AIX client on the site is
v2.8009 which isn't allowed to do any OGR (blocked by perproxy). There
was a 2.8012 version but that contained the bug and was pulled from the
site.

Late 2001 I'll filled a request for a new version in bugzilla, but 
until now :(

First, RS6000s don't use PowerPC, they use Power CPU. The core is
roughly the same, but the Power CPU is optimized for moving massive
amounts of data (newer CPUs have over 4000 pins).

Scott is correct in that the Power CPU doesn't have critical
instructions needed to do RC5, so it has to emulate them, which is very
costly. If you want to see the RS6000 really shine, compare the OGR
rates; our 4 CPU machine at work gets 24Gn/s.
