Thanks Kevin....with it being 75 degrees here I guess I am crazy to be sitting indoors trying to compile code.....but this is my time to try stuff while I have the week off...

FWIW setup.py has next to nothing in it:
--------------------------------------------------------
#!/usr/bin/env python

import os
import sys

from distribute_setup import use_setuptools
use_setuptools()
from setuptools import setup, Extension

if not hasattr(sys, "hexversion") or sys.hexversion < 0x02040000:
raise Error("Python 2.4 or newer is required")

if os.name == "posix":
from setup_posix import get_config
else: # assume windows
from setup_windows import get_config

metadata, options = get_config()
metadata['ext_modules'] = [Extension(sources=['_mysql.c'], **options)]
metadata['long_description'] = metadata['long_description'].replace(r'\n', '')
setup(**metadata)

--------------------------------------------------------

But not sure where things like 'get_config' live unless setuptools has it...

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.:)
