I assume this is an unexec problem, in which case it may actually be
the assembler or linker using a different layout which causes the
trouble rather than the compiler per se.  Not that that probably helps
a lot...

What is the version of the IBM compiler (suite?) that is known to
work?  We can note that.

By the way, I gather that AIX can be 64-bit.  It might now be simple
to make a 64-bit Emacs work under it if anyone is interested.  OTOH,
maybe unexec then needs work...
