Installation problem in AIX

I'm trying to install Python 2.3.4 in AIX 5.2 with gcc 2.9. After a lot
of messing around I got the configure script to run using the following
command (libm parameter found from python-list archives):

configure --with-gcc --with-cxx=g++ --with-libm="" --disable-ipv6

Now I have a problem running make:

        ./Modules/makexp_aix Modules/python.exp . libpython2.3.a;  gcc
-Wl,-bE:Modules/python.exp -lld -o python  Modules/ccpython.o
collect2: /lib/libld.a: not a COFF file
make: 1254-004 The error code from the last command is 1.

I had the same "not a COFF file" error during configure with libm.a
until I added the --with-libm="" parameter.

Can anyone help?
