Python should be able to compile with any C89-compliant compiler, so it seems a good idea to open a bug for compile errors instead.
In this case, the fix is trivial, though, so I'm simply committing it (replace a C++-style comment ("// ...") with a normal "/* ... */")). Can you try again with r84799?

That said, it seems xlc (or xlc_r) enables additional C extensions compared to cc, so perhaps it's beneficial to use it anyway?
