Thanks for the report.  I'm thinking that it might be best to just add
something like:

AC_CHECK([. ./bad.site && exit 77], [ignore], [ignore], [ignore])

prior to the configure test, to skip this test on AIX; can you confirm
whether that would be sufficient?  Exiting on sourcing failure is
preferable, but I don't see any alternative, and at least the user still
gets a message on stderr; besides, you would normally expect a
config.site to be well-formed so that failure to detect a bad
config.site is an unlikely case to begin with.
