Hopefully I un-HTMLized the mail :)

OK, because you want to build with AIX and Python 2.2.1, I'd suggest 
tinkering with the setup.py file.  I get terribly confused by distutils, 
but I have had people report success with it :)

Anyway, what you want is

      python setup.py build


      python setup.py install

and you should be in good shape!  I *think* its architecture agnostic 
enough such that you can build it on AIX without having to do much more 
than change the linker flags to be non-gcc versions (the current linker 
flags just try to embed the path to the Oracle libraries in the 
executable so you don't have to export LD_LIBRARY_PATH).
