Currently, creating dynamic libs on AIX requires a python script.
Because I don't have python installed on my machine, currently the
thread library regression tests are failing.

Now I'm wondering myself why this script is needed at all. The
compiler can generate shared libraries on its own with the -G command
line flag. It doesn't need any import or export files for this and no
other helper scripts.

I have to admit I don't really understand the issues involved with
dynamic linking on AIX but I have modified my copy of to
just use the appropriate compiler flags and now the regression tests
for the thread library pass because the dynamic thread library can be
built sucessfully.

The changes are quite small, is there any interest on this?
