Hi Paul,

I got the same message (AIX 5.1, xlC) but the compile went fine. I have seen
this warning on Linux a lot as well, when compiling various oss packages
(Samba comes to mind). Does your compile fail?

On a side note, I am unable to compile the modules, it fails with the
following error:

./Modules/ld_so_aix cc_r -bI:Modules/python.exp

Something you have come across?
