For the archives, there's this error on powerpc-ibm-aix:
    CCLD     src/
  ld: 0711-317 ERROR: Undefined symbol: .rpl_malloc
  ld: 0711-345 Use the -bloadmap or -bnoquiet option to obtain more information.
  collect2: error: ld returned 8 exit status
  Makefile:7718: recipe for target 'src/' failed

rpl_malloc() defined in lib/malloc.c is in libcoreutils.a, but there's this comment in src/
  # Ensure we don't link against libcoreutils.a as that lib is
  # not compiled with -fPIC which causes issues on 64 bit at least
  src_libstdbuf_so_LDADD = $(LIBINTL)

But the solution is the same: Fix configure check to detect ELF systems without false positives.

(file #33052)

It's o.k, just needed to not install stdbuf.

Can close this.

Get this build error with coreutils 8.23 because the system doesn't have shared libraries.

  CC       src/src_libstdbuf_so-libstdbuf.o
src/libstdbuf.c:1:0: error: -fPIC is not supported on this target
Makefile:10791: recipe for target 'src/src_libstdbuf_so-libstdbuf.o' failed

I can't see any easy way to stop building
