I shouldn't say too much since it's a year or so since I've tried,
but from what I recall many problems cascaded from python not building
on HP-UX.  Python was horribly painful to get going there last year,
but I see the current 2.7.5 looks much more promising so far.

Assuming my memory is not faulty on this, is there some good reason
why gcc should depend on python?
