We have successfully compiled libnet on AIX and syslog-ng PE 3.0 does
support spoof-source on AIX, however this is not the case with syslog-ng
PE 2.1 nor syslog-ng OSE binaries.

Since we are already working on the binary package support on OSE 3.0, I
could provide you with an OSE 3.0 binary snapshot that works on AIX and
has spoof-source support. Later, if this works out for you, you can
purchase an OSE binary subscription to obtain the final build.

Price-wise, the Premium Edition has the highest cost, but that's
available immediately. The OSE subscription has much lower price but
still needs some work. And of course I might be able to help you with
libnet compilation, but that requires a lot of time.
