Building gpg on AIX: the solution

Painfully simple, actually: on the GMP homepage

the following can be found:

	A change to GCC (from version 2.8) makes GMP fail to build on IBM
	RS/6000 computers running AIX.  You'll see complaints of unrecognized
	assembly instructions. Pass CFLAGS="-g -O2 -mcpu=power" or CFLAGS="-g
	-O2 -mcpu=powerpc" to `make' to work around this. (Choose the form
	that is appropriate for your system; if you're unsure which processor
	type you have, try running config.guess from the GMP top level

So I did

	CFLAGS="-g -O2 -mcpu=powerpc" ./configure

and after a few tweaks gpg finally got built. Yay :)
