Need Help with C Compiler Error in AIX 5.3 During GnuPG Build

I am new to GnuPG and have recently subscribed to this mailing list to access to help from the GnuPG user community.

I downloaded GnuPG and required libraries and am attempting build of the first required package npth-1.6.

The ./configure step failed with the below error.

configure:3552: error: in `/fin3/app/app/capplmgr/mlc-rot/gnupg/npth-1.6':
configure:3554: error: C compiler cannot create executables
See `config.log' for more details

I looked in config.log and extracted the below excerpt that shows more details about the error.

IBM XL C/C++ Enterprise Edition for AIX, V9.0
Version: 09.00.0000.0000
configure:3463: $? = 0
configure:3483: checking whether the C compiler works
configure:3505: cc $(INCLUDE_FLAGS) -U__STR__ -DAIXRIOS -DNLS_ASIA -DORE -D_BSD -DRIOS -qro -O -DAFSTUBS   conftest.c  >&5
cc: 1501-228 (W) input file $(INCLUDE_FLAGS) not found
configure:3509: $? = 252
configure:3547: result: no

| #define PACKAGE_URL ""
| #define PACKAGE "npth"
| #define VERSION "1.6"
| /* end confdefs.h.  */
| int
| main ()

|   ;
|   return 0;
| }
configure:3552: error: in `/fin3/app/app/capplmgr/mlc-rot/gnupg/npth-1.6':
configure:3554: error: C compiler cannot create executables
See `config.log' for more details

It seems that the key log entry here is the line: cc: 1501-228 (W) input file $(INCLUDE_FLAGS) not found

I would appreciate any help/advise on how to fix this error.
