Check the permissions (ls -l) on the installed GNU make executable.  See
if the setuid or setgid bits are set on the executable.

If they are, try turning them off ("chmod 755 make", for example).

See if that helps.

If this is the problem and you use the above solution, you will lose (at
least this is my understanding, not having an AIX system to work with)
the ability to use the -l option to GNU make, but that's the only effect
you should see.
