Not critical - but I note a difference between Python3 3.6.7 and 3.7.1 -
no support for the configure option --with-openssl.

On AIX I was able to run both configure and "make install" without incident.

I also ran the "make test" command.


9 tests failed again:
    test_ctypes test_distutils test_httpservers test_importlib
    test_site test_socket test_time  test_utf8_mode test_venv

There are, for most of above, a PR for these waiting final review and merge.

test_utf8_mode: I thought this was already merged. Will research.

test_venv, test_site: new test failures (I am not familiar with). Will
need more research.

16 tests failed:
    test_asyncio test_ctypes test_distutils test_ftplib test_httplib
    test_httpservers test_importlib test_locale
    test_multiprocessing_fork test_multiprocessing_forkserver
    test_multiprocessing_spawn test_socket test_ssl test_strptime
    test_time test_tools

FYI: again, there are PR for many of these, but, for now, I'll assume
they will not be considered for backport. FYI only.
