I think one reason here might be that GNU make may create a batch file
under w32 in order to execute the actual command.

What is the size of your environment on this AIX system?
How much does 'make' add to it?  Are you using GNU make or the system
one, and if the former, does the .NOEXPORT help at all, and if the
latter, does it have a similar feature?

If you control this AIX system, maybe you can increase the limit using
chdev as described on Sven's page (for AIX 5)?
