Although this is closed - it is not (yet) resolved, really.

ctypes does not compile on AIX 5.3, or AIX 6.1.

Applying the patch posted (https://bugs.python.org/file17098/pyffi.patch) does get rid of most of the problems. However, to completely "fix" it I also copied as follows:

cp  -rp ../sourceforge/libffi/libffi-3.2.1/src/powerpc ./Python-2.7.8/Modules/_ctypes/libffi/src/powerpc
make clean
make

There are still other issues - BUT - with this ctypes completes as a module of python.
