This occurs because it must link with -lbsd on AIX 6.1. If you hand
link the failing module by adding -lbsd it builds quietly.
If you build the prerequisites for the _tkinter module on AIX 6.1, you
will also encounter an error becuase this module is not linked with the
-lXext library. Again, you can hand link it with that library.
Notice that the modules ignore these two libraries when they are passed
to the python build. The modules should build against the libraries
that are mentioned in the --with-libs=LIBS argument to python configure.
I will eventually figure out how to modify setup.py so that these two
failures no longer occur on AIX 6.1.
