Python 2.2.1 installation woes on AIX 4.3.3 IBM Pseries 660

Extracted Python 2.2.1, ./configure results in:

"""

"""

Running ./configure --with-gcc WORKS (with threads enabled), but FAILS
during MAKE. I get a whole lot of the following:

"""

-DHAVE_CONFIG_H  -o Modules/python.o Modules/python.c

                 from Modules/python.c:3:

And MAKE finally fails with:

"""

                 from

I'm also having trouble with DCOracle2, but I'll leave those for
later. Any AIX experts out there that can help me?

Thanks,
Sean
