In the future, please only upload plain text files (or just inline small amounts of text), uploading files in Word format can make it much more difficult to get access to the information.

Can you show the full `configure` options you are using for both 32bit and 64bit builds?

Bug #16179: ruby binaries generate "already initialized constant" warnings on AIX 6.1
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/16179#change-82027

* Author: Reshma (Reshma Kumar)
* Status: Feedback
* Priority: Normal
* Assignee: 
* Target version: 
* ruby -v: 2.6.3
* Backport: 2.5: UNKNOWN, 2.6: UNKNOWN
----------------------------------------
We are building ruby 2.6.3(both 32 and 64bit) on AIX 6.1.
The build options used for 64bit build are:-

```
export LDFLAGS="-L/opt/freeware/lib64 -L/opt/freeware/lib -Wl,-blibpath:/opt/freeware/lib64:/usr/lib:/lib"
```

and for 32bit build are:-

```
export LDFLAGS="-L/opt/freeware/lib -Wl,-blibpath:/opt/freeware/lib:/usr/lib:/lib -Wl,-bmaxdata:0x80000000"
```

After successful build and installation of the package, 64bit and 32bit libraries are installed in /opt/freeware/lib64 and /opt/freeware/lib respectively. There are ruby scripts which are shipped in both /opt/freeware/lib and /opt/freeware/lib64.

Execution of irb(both 64bit and 32bit) generates warnings as mentioned below.

```
# irb
/opt/freeware/lib/ruby/2.6.0/uri/common.rb:17: warning: already initialized constant URI::REGEXP
/opt/freeware/lib64/ruby/2.6.0/uri/common.rb:17: warning: previous definition of REGEXP was here
/opt/freeware/lib/ruby/2.6.0/uri/common.rb:18: warning: already initialized constant URI::Parser
/opt/freeware/lib64/ruby/2.6.0/uri/common.rb:18: warning: previous definition of Parser was here
```

Any ideas why this could be happening?
