This issue also prevents trying to build Python with gcc on AIX which I am attempting at the moment.
While trying to resolve my own issue I have applied the following dirty patch to the python-2.5 tar ball.
The patch should allow you to set CC to a non standard value.

# Patch to make Python work with AIX and OpenPKG.
#
# This patch is NOT complete.
# - configure is not automatically recreated from configure.in
# - The correct behaviour for AIX should be to use CC if set and
#   otherwise to look for cc_r, cc and gcc (not sure about the order).
