For years Python includes the file /usr/include/pthread.h. The AIX documentation states that this needs to be the first include file included OR the define _THREAD_SAFE needs to be defined.

As this may have been true, might still be true, or might have never been true - this patch assures that the define is added to BASECFLAGS for AIX - and will not be forgotten during builds.

It may be advisable to include this in backports. This "conditional requirement" has been accurate for over 20 years.

@Micheal.Felt I can't see an attached patch or PR, FYI.
