No good sadly. The same error continues to appear. I had actually
attempted to compile without -qkeyword=__volatile__, but had hoped to
force xlc to recognize it. This is obviously more of an XL issue,
as I've since found that everything works flawlessly in 32-bit mode. If
has more suggestions, I'd love the help as I'm lost at this point.

Thanks for the help thus far,
