Trying to build gcc2 is likely a clue that no usable compiler could be found.

set PKG_DEBUG_LEVEL=1, or maybe 2.

Be aware that you are doing something that fairly few do, so you are
more likely to run into trouble than if you were doing something
normal.  I don't mean to discourage you, but only to calibrate your
expectations of works correctly vs what you might need to fix.

pkgsrc as a whole benefits from making it work and testing on odd
operating systems, as that shakes out portability assumptions that
aren't quite right.   So even though I have no HP-UX systems, I'm glad
you are trying.
