confdefs.h should not be missing. The configure script creates
confdefs.h here:

  # AIX cpp loses on an empty file, so make sure it contains at least a newline.
  echo > confdefs.h

It prints "checking for AIX... no" when a confdefs.c with the
following contents run through the preprocessor does not contain "yes".

  #include "confdefs.h"
  #ifdef _AIX
    yes
  #endif

So it seems that your compiler does not define _AIX.
