Libtool parameterizes the ar(1) invocation to create a new library, in the

Without having tested: I assume you have manually set AR_FLAGS=-X64, is
that true?  Can you try this
 configure AR="ar -X64"

it should serve as a workaround until the bug is fixed.

Ralf, remember that this exact same problem was discussed amongst ourselves off-list after I encountered the same issue. At that time, it was determined that AIX ar did respect the environment variable OBJECT_MODE=64 (apparently the easiest way to trigger a 64-bit build under AIX), but perhaps a different option should be supplied to ar by libtool.
