I have compiled 9.0.4 on AIX 5.3 with GCC 4.1.1 without any issues.
(well the regression tests hit an issue on REL9_0_STABLE builds that 
they don't hit with more recent branches but that is due to a makefile 
related issue that I should post about in a different thread.

The buildfarm member grebe 
(http://buildfarm.postgresql.org/cgi-bin/show_history.pl?nm=grebe&br=HEAD) 
does this.

I do not have access to a AIX 6.1 machine
