Found a LANG setting for AIX in src/callproc.c but that did not help for

I can now get a stable freeze by writing a to a logfile during the
build. Then the freeze happens even before dumping of emacs:

dpkg-buildpackage -b > ../build_x.log 2>&1 &

and after the first freeze (otherwise the compile never continues
without writing to a log file)

dpkg-buildpackage -b -nc >> ../build_x.log 2>&1 & 

I saw the page http://www.gnu.org/software/hurd/open_issues/emacs.html
by Thomas, being able to give commands in the Mach console, but for me
the freeze is totally locking up kvm/hurd/mach.
