I don't know, but I get "yes" when I do it, but I'm using 
./configure --with-threads --without-gcc  
so I'm using the AIX xlc compiler instead of gcc. 

( If I remember correctly why I'm doing this, I think it's 
  because gcc complains about missing whitespace in some of 
  the AIX headers included with --with-threads. But I could
  be misremembering this. ) 

If you have problems, you might try it --without-gcc .
