actually, they were "implemented," but they were listed as being
HPUX-compat -specific.  quotes around "implemented", becasuse it's a
case of "lights are on, but nobody's home" -- the functions return
the correct values, given their input, but have absolutely no effect
on the shared memory segments.

i've gotten rid of the "#ifdef HPUXCOMPAT"s.
