My recollection is that this is a "feature" of AIX: GNU make never
touches any of these environment variables.

If you install a program as SUID or SGID, then the system will unset
these variables itself.

By default GNU make installs with the setgid bit set on AIX in order to
be able to determine the system load, to support the -l option.

If you don't need the -l option functionality, you can simply undo the
SGID setting on the GNU make binary:

  # chmod 755 /usr/local/bin/make

and that should take care of the problem.
