Steps to reproduce:

I was trying to build firefox 34 in AIX6.1 using gcc. I encountered numerous issues most of them are related to OS specific compilation macros. 
Finally i encountered the below errors for which i have no idea. 

 7:27.70                  from ../../../../dist/system_wrappers/algorithm:3,

This kind of error suggests something wrong in the gtk headers, where gpointer is not properly defined as a type. That being said, you shouldn't be trying to build Firefox 34. It is outdated and has known security vulnerabilities.

Okay. Which version we can try building? You said "something wrong in the gtk headers". We have gtk2 2.10.6-5 version as the latest for AIX and i am using that. Do i need to look for more recent version of gtk2-devel ?
