I am trying to compile Python on Aix 5.3.

I have used the following options as per the README file:

export PATH=/usr/bin:/usr/vacpp/bin
        ./configure --with-gcc="xlc_r -q64" --with-cxx="xlC_r -q64" \
           --disable-ipv6 AR="ar -X64"


When I run make I receive the following error:

building 'zlib' extension
./Modules/ld_so_aix xlc_r -q64 -bI:Modules/python.exp build/temp.aix-5.3-2.6/u01/jamese/Python-2.6.1/Modules/zlibmodule.o -L/usr/local/lib -lz -o build/lib.aix-5.3-2.6/zlib.so

Stop.

I would appreciate any assistance that could be provided with this.

Thanks,
James.
