Building emacs on AIX 4.3.2 w/ GCC

I'm trying to build emacs 21.3 on AIX 4.3.2 using GCC 3.2.2
(powerpc-ibm-aix4.3.2.0, built to use AIX's as & ld).  I don't have
access to any IBM unbundled C compilers (cc, xlc, vac).  Everything
seems to work fine up to the unexec stage: temacs works, but the
unexec'ed emacs core dumps immediately in __start().  I've seen a lot
of discussion of similar problems in some quite old postings in
various newsgroups and mailing lists, but have been unable to find any
resolutions to the issue.  I've also tried using the unexaix from
Xemacs to no avail.  Is this a known and still unresolved problem?
(I notice that AIX is not among the "Supported Platforms" for emacs 21
on the home page - Is this the reason why?)
