This failure should be fixed by the patch below.

The no-executables.at test group nicely shows which cache variables
need to be set inside the configury of GCC when GCC_NO_EXECUTABLES is in
use; unfortunately, I don't know of an easy way for GCC to determine how
to set them reliably when the linker cannot be used.  While the
dlopen-related ones may be implied fairly reliably from $host, the rest
is simply unclear to me.  See e.g. this PR for an instance of the
problem: <http://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=45174#c13>


    Fix AC_NO_EXECUTABLES test failure on AIX.
    * libltdl/m4/libtool.m4 (_LT_SYS_MODULE_PATH_AIX): Wrap link
    test in AC_CACHE_VAL, using cache variable $lt_cv_aix_libpath.
    * tests/no-executables.at (AC_NO_EXECUTABLES): Preset it, to
    avoid link test.
    Bug report by Rainer Tammer.
