New submission from David Jones <drj at pobox.com>:

After hacking the configure script to work around the issues http://bugs.python.org/issue4025 and http://bugs.python.org/issue1633863 
the build still fails:

I'm mystified and I can't log in to the AIX box right now.

This does not appear to be the same as http://bugs.python.org/issue1756343 and http://bugs.python.org/issue1694442 which both appear to be the same, 
but documenting a differen AIX build problem.
