	GCC 2.95 does not support AIX 5.

	The native AIX tools (assembler, linker, binutils) are recommended
for use with GCC on AIX, not the GNU versions.

	GCC 3.2 config.guess returns "powerpc-ibm-aix5.2.0.0" and
"rs6000-ibm-aix5.2.0.0" on the systems I test.  GCC 3.2 should use its AIX
5 (really AIX 5.1) configuration which will work on AIX 5.2.
