Mozilla Firefox Build on AIX Problem


I am trying to build Mozilla Firefox from the Mozilla source (Version: 0.9.3).
The version of AIX is 5, the output of 'uname -a' command is:
% uname -a
AIX rook 1 5 0007831C4C00

compiler version:
% xlc
VisualAge C++ Professional / C for AIX Compiler, Version 5

My .mozconfig file is:
. $topsrcdir/browser/config/mozconfig
ac_add_options --disable-tests
ac_add_options --disable-auto-deps
ac_add_options --enable-crypto
ac_add_options --enable-extensions
mk_add_options MOZ_OBJDIR=@TOPSRCDIR@/obj-opt
ac_add_options --disable-debug
ac_add_options --enable-optimize="-O2 -qmaxmem=-1 -qalias=noansi"
ac_add_options --enable-default-toolkit=gtk2
mk_add_options MOZ_CO_PROJECT=browser
ac_add_options --enable-application=browser
LDFLAGS="-brtl -bso -bh:5"

Also, $topsrcdir/browser/config/mozconfig file is:

# This file specifies the build flags for Firefox. You can use it by adding:
# . $topsrcdir/browser/config/mozconfig
# to the top of your mozconfig file.

export MOZ_PHOENIX=1
mk_add_options MOZ_PHOENIX=1

ac_add_options --disable-ldap
ac_add_options --disable-mailnews
ac_add_options --enable-extensions=cookie,xml-rpc,xmlextras,pref,transformiix,universalchardet,typeaheadf
ac_add_options --enable-crypto
ac_add_options --disable-composer
ac_add_options --enable-single-profile
ac_add_options --disable-profilesharing

Then, i run the build using the following command:
% gmake -f build

I get an error, here is the main part of the error:
gmake[5]: Entering directory `/home1/oie/mozi/riaj/mozilla/xpcom/reflect/xptinfo/src'
xlC: 1501-224 fatal error in /usr/vacpp/exe/xlCentry: signal 11 received

Somebody please help !!!

I would say that /usr/vacpp/exe/xlCentry is a part of the IBM C compiler, and that gmake is for use with gcc compiler. Don't you have a mix between the gcc world and the xlC world compilers and libraries ?
