[Samba] IBM xlc compiler and configure question

I am trying desperately to get rid idmap support working.  I got xlc 6.0
on the box to compile, but I cannot get past configure because it gives
the following error in config.log:
cc: 1501-208 command option e is missing a subargument
configure:1708: $? = 40
configure:1717: result:
configure:1804: checking for gcc
configure:1830: result: cc
configure:2074: checking for C compiler version
configure:2077: cc --version </dev/null >&5
cc: 1501-216 command option -version is not recognized - passed to ld
  C for AIX Compiler, Version 6
     xlc [ option | inputfile ]...
     cc [ option | inputfile ]...
     c89 [ option | inputfile ]...
     xlc128 [ option | inputfile ]...
If I run cc --version or -version it does in fact just spit out usage
information.  Why is it doing --version?  How do I get configuration
going with xlc?
Here is my setup.sh script:
#!/bin/ksh -x
#export LIBPATH=/usr/lib:/usr/local/lib:/opt/freeware/lib
env "CC=cc" \
CPPFLAGS="-I/usr/local/bdb/include -I/usr/local/ssl/include

                chmod 555 nsswitch/$i
                cp nsswitch/$i /usr/lib/security
                rm /usr/lib/security/$i.old
                cp nsswitch/$i /usr/lib/security
