It didn't at the time (10/2003). The changes file says this was fixed in 0.22 (01/2004), which I think I noticed a month or two after that. It has this interesting comment...

AIX also massages some very naughty bits (MakeMaker macro variables) in $Config{lddlflags} that should never have been put there, but alas, they're there, so we find & resolve them.

My email at the time says these were getting passed to the linker without being interpolated (during a 'make test' of Module::Build). So either it's an AIX/perl issue or Module::Build was making assumptions it shouldn't have.
