I can confirm this is still a problem in py3k for AIX 5.3 and AIX 6.1.
The file "/usr/lpp/xlC/include/load.h" does not exist anymore; it is now "/usr/include/load.h".

The proposed patch would only create a problem for very old versions of AIX and xlc (which are no longer supported by IBM anyway and I doubt anybody is going to compile Python 3.x on them some day), while the current state is that it is broken for current versions ("current" being "released in the last 7 years"!).
