HP/UX has some subtle "features" governed by preprocessor macros.  Sockets
in particular come to mind.  


may offer some guidance.  While it suggests changes you can't easily make
(to the autoconf inputs), it also says the cause is a disagreement between
the preprocesor and the compiler.  That sounds like a local setup issue.
