- has anybody a clue how well (or not) pkgsrc runs on HP-UX?

	I've done some wacking about of the pkgsrc build system
to work on HP-UX, but it's mostly been on 11.00 and 11.11

	It does largely work, even with the HP ANSI-C compiler,
although many of the applications in pkgsrc don't always cope
with a non-gcc compiler very well.

	From my HP-UX box:
