Python has its own configuration: you create a setup.py. Typically using
either setuptools or distutils do abstract everything (just like some
people write their own configure, but most people use a tool like autoconf
to generate it instead). My guess is that the setup.py has some special
code for dealing with AIX and is using that code path (where the majority
of stuff has traditionally used XLC, even for open source). I have no idea
why it's adding -q64 though, since neither our Python nor the Perzl python
is built 64-bit (Perzl does have a python_64, but you have to go out of
your way to use it).

Pete, I'll look in to it a bit after lunch - I'm here through the end of
the year, as unlike my other colleagues I seem to enjoy taking vacations
when it's above freezing for some crazy reason. :)

In classic Gnu projects the configure script sets the options in
Makefile.

Either there's a configure script, or pip has its own configure system
for
configuring gcc.

THere's no file named configure ??
