Issues compiling with large file support

P: n/a
Hello all,
I am having issues compiling Python with large file support. I tried
forcing the configure script to add it but then it bombs in the make
process. Any help will be appreciated.

PowerPc on AIX version 5

VisualAge C++ Professional / C for AIX Compiler, Version 6

Python version:
Python 2.4.1

Error Message:
