On AIX 7.2, in 64-bit mode, with the environment variables settings

  CC="xlc -q64 -qthreaded -qtls";
  CXX="xlC -q64 -qthreaded -qtls";
  AR="ar -X 64";
  NM="nm -X 64 -B";
  export CC CXX AR NM

(with which I build many GNU packages successfully), I get 20 test failures:

* 16 failures in category 'features/archives'.
  Error message:
    /home/haible/make- invalid option -- X
    Usage: make [options] [target] ...
  Apparently the value of ${AR} or the value of ${NM} is being decomposed, and
  the -X option, meant for the 'ar' or the 'nm' program, is being passed to

* 1 failure in category 'features/include'.
  The command 'touch -a test.foo' is being printed twice, not just once.
  This could be a bug in the AIX exec* functions, which don't properly
  separate the stdout and stderr of the parent process and child process
  in some situations. (I had seen this many years ago, in AIX 4 or AIX 5.)

* 3 failures in category 'features/output-sync'.
  Error message is "timeout after 10 seconds".

Find attached the logs.
