Yes. However, from the gcc docs:
Enable 64-bit AIX ABI and calling convention: 64-bit pointers,
64-bit `long' type, and the infrastructure needed to support them.
Specifying `-maix64' implies `-mpowerpc64' and `-mpowerpc', while
`-maix32' disables the 64-bit ABI and implies `-mno-powerpc64'.
GCC defaults to `-maix32'.
In other words, the system is dual-mode and runs in 32-bit mode by
