I'm used to do a ldd -d in Linux but it doesn't work in this AIX machine, I looked and I found some places to download the ldd program, but I actually want to know if there is a default application to see the libraries dependencies.

According to the Rosetta Stone for Unix, the command you want is "dump -H".

Apparently dump -H is not reporting the full path to dependent modules. It is only showing the base filenames along with the library search paths. – Sridhar Ratnakumar May 3 '10 at 23:40

You can try genld to see what is loaded by the process or use dump-h as said Geoff Fritz.

Here's one Ldd source code for aix.

hope this helps.
