What version/release of IBM_i or OS/400 you are trying to do this on?  (it may make a difference -- for IBM_i 5.4 or 6.1, you want AIX 5.3 packages, for IBM_i 7.1 or 7.2, you want AIX 6.1 packages.)
That idevcloud page is "dated"... it mentions PostGreSQL ver. 8.4.8, but PostGreSQL is now at 12.1

You can also find a copy of IBM's AIX XLC compiler and download the "free trial", and you can install that under PASE ...  see here:
But, perhaps a better, more modern approach is to just use GCC?  If you are on a recent IBM_i version, (7.2, 7.3, 7.4), there are yum RPM packages to just download and install that stuff easily.

Also, depending on your needs, you might find a pre-compiled binary version of PostGreSQL for AIX ready to download and install, here:
(They appear to have PostGreSQL pre-built for AIX.)
This site:

also has copies of PostGreSQL 11.5 for AIX ...
See also:
for another good source of open source software packages for AIX.

I cannot guarantee that these will all just install and run "as is" under PASE, but many often work.
Hope that helps ...

is there someone who managed to install PostgreSql as suggested here:

I suppose that my problem is that the xlc command is missing.

Thanks for you help
