I have used g77/gcc and the IBM C and Fortran compilers on AIX in the past
(I don't currently have access to an AIX account, but I need to get it
renewed anyway, so I may be able to be more precise in the future).

It was necessary, I think, to use both GNU or both IBM compilers.

Looking at config.log should tell you why configure thought g77 couldn't
create executables. This will probably help.
