in fortran the "platform" defines are actually more
related to the compiler than the operating system.
the -D__AIX define would be more appropriately named
-D__XLF since you are using the XLF compiler (which is
"native" to AIX). if, for instance, you were using g95
for your platform, you'd have to use the corresponding
g95 arch file and tweak it.

this would be different for c code, but the cp2k developers
have put a lot of effort into avoiding this (except for
libint but even there the preference is on using the
fortran 2003 standard on interfacing fortran with c and
not needing c wrappers).
