New submission from Michael Felt <aixtools at felt.demon.nl>:

Did not notice this earlier - as the buildbot does not report it: issue38312 introduced a regression with regard to AIX.

Not sure how to classify component (as Build, C API, or Library, so left blank)

Failed to build these modules:

    bpo-38312: Add curses.{get,set}_escdelay and curses.{get,set}_tabsize. (GH-16938)

Background: ncurses is not part of AIX; curses. ncurses packages provided by other parties are not stable enough for, among other things, allow the buildbot to pass.

Prior to this commit AIX passed all tests related to _curses.
