CC=xlc_r ./configure does not work on AIX-5.1, because configure unconditionally sets $CC to "cc_r":

	case $ac_sys_system in
	AIX*)   CC=cc_r
		without_gcc=;;


It would be better to leave $CC and just add "-qthreaded" to $CFLAGS. 

Furthermore, much of the C source code of Python uses C++ /C99 comments. This is an error with the standard AIX compiler. Please add the compiler flag "-qcpluscmt".

An alternative would be to use a default of "xlc_r" for CC on AIX. This calls the compiler in a mode that both accepts C++ comments and generates reentrant code.
