Spotted in issue#941346 msg#128214, the "-L$(srcdir)" should be removed from BLDSHARED on AIX:

The problem is that '-L$(srcdir)' adds '$(srcdir)' to the runpath too (as there is no '-blibpath' argument), opening a security hole for as well as the

As LDLIBRARY points to the immediate file 'libpython$(VERSION).so' instead of '-lpython$(VERSION)', I don't see the need for '-L$(srcdir)' at all.
