AIX gcc 4.0.0 tk8.4 tcl8.4 xlc_r 6.0.0 cc_r 6.0.0

Regardless of which of the compilers I use gcc, xlc_r, or cc_r, I get the following error after I hit make:

creating build/temp.aix-5.3-2.5/opt/freeware/src/packages/Python-2.5/Modules

        0509-026 System error: A file or directory in the path name does not exist.
error: No such file or directory

For some reason when I use xlc_r or gcc, it fails to find the local libpython2.5.a library that is residing in the current directory.  When I use cc_r, it fails to  find and even though there are copies of those in the local . directory.

Any help would be appreciated.  Here are the configures I used:

./configure --with-gcc="xlc_r -q64" --with-cxx="xlC_r -q64" \
         --disable-ipv6 AR="ar -X64" --enable-shared

./configure --with-gcc --with-cxx=g++ \
            --disable-ipv6 --enable-shared

configure --disable-ipv6

Let me know if there is other information you need.

Jaman: is this still a problem for you? If not (and nobody else
opposes), I'll close this one.
