Unfortunately Integrity machines capable of running HP-UX are made of
high-refined Unobtainum. I was never able to procure one.
pkgsrc is thus pretty much untested. However, HP-UX on Itanium uses
64-bit ELF so if you can source a working toolchain elsewhere there are
decent odds of it being in better shape than the PA-RISC support.
