Those attributes are meant gcc, not xlc.

In config.log you should find a section starting

	configure:17423: checking whether gcc __attribute__ ((const)) works

where it ought to give "result: no" and in config.h leave
HAVE_ATTRIBUTE_CONST undefined.  You can check if that's happened.

You can remove the #defines of HAVE_ATTRIBUTE_CONST, MALLOC, MODE,
NORETURN in config.h if that's the cause of the problem.  But I'd like
to ensure the configure test gets the right answer.

I think libtool tries to detect that itself, you might like to let
that detection decide.
