Will update with more later. I’ll sleep well tonight. Got my first wheel built.
Tomorrow I’ll look at earlier suggestions on how to install a wheel.
And soon I hope to have a clear explanation of what the platform tag for AIX should be - one that follows the restrictions for AIX updates to the bos (base operating system).

Starting a new thread - I think the first one has served it's purpose.
I use, successfully, pip build; pip install to build and install modules for Python. The files "installed" by pip install (to .../site-packages) I repackage as installp (AIX installp manager) packages.
Does "pip wheel" work? If not, you may be missing the "wheel" project from your environment (pip and setuptools will do their best to make "pip install" still work even if they don't have the required dependencies to make wheel archives).
