rdiff-backup compilation error

P: 1
We are trying to install rdiff-backup onto IBM AIX 5.3 system. But have got stuck up at some level. It would be a great help if you could atleast give us a hint as to what is going wrong where.

These are the steps we tried out on the system,

We have downloaded/untarred/compiled/installed the packages as shown below,>ls -lrt
total 5408
-rw-r----- 1 root system 563200 Nov 26 14:23 rdiff-backup-1.0.5.tar
-rw-r----- 1 root system 2191360 Nov 26 14:28 librsync-0.9.7.tar
drwxrwxr-x 4 500 302 4096 Nov 26 14:35 rdiff-backup-1.0.5
drwxrwxrwx 8 500 500 8192 Nov 26 22:04 librsync-0.9.7

The librsync went well. But while compilation of rdiff-backup we are facing the below errors,>python build
running build
running build_py
running build_ext
building 'rdiff_backup.C' extension
cc_r -DNDEBUG -O -qmaxmem=-1 -qcpluscmt -DAIX_GENUINE_CPLUSCPLUS -D_LARGE_FILES -I/opt/freeware/include/python2.3 -c cmodule.c -o build/temp.aix-5.3-2.3/cmodule.o
unable to execute cc_r: No such file or directory
error: command 'cc_r' failed with exit status 1

We also tried installing the same using ,

python --librsync-dir=/usr/local build .But same error.

Is there anything we are missing it out? Or is it something else. We are kindaa stuck up at this stage , any help would be really beneficial for us.
Request you once again to guide us. If any queries please go ahead.

Thanks in advance.
