Thank you Rich.
The sentence you couldn't understand is my bad, s/b:
"In fact, on some, even non-AIX hosts, permissions would suggest that the permission error should be returned."

Not sure what that last sentence means.
> Should this be happening? Is AIX simply less forgiving, and returns a more serious error. Or is the openssl CLI handling the missing file differently on AIX?
I can well believe that AIX is, exactly that, less forgiving and returns different error codes than many other Unices. There is no AIX-specific code in openssl around file access. Trying "ls -ld" on /usr and /usr/local and /usr/local/ssl and checking errno might be interesting.
