As an additional comment, it took me quite a while to find working values for CFLAGS, AR, and LDFLAGS.  I'm not sure how you might accomplish it, but it would be friendlier if, once it's determined that gcc is not available and xlC is available, a reasonable set of default options were supplied, so that every user of xlC doesn't
have to rediscover some set defaults which allow the build to succeed.

Just recently we've added information about GCC's CFLAGS/LDFLAGS/AR
on AIX in the README:

Perhaps it's worth expanding and mentioning XLC flags ?
(as an interim fix until proper detection is made)
