hpux has been through tumultuous revisions over the last 10 years,
and it was necessary to distinguish. It is now time to remove the
distinction I think. But you will have to tell me how to do that.
I no longer have hpux.

Make sure that you have the latest sources, and tell me if this
is not already fixed. I remember thinking about this recently.
hpux10 should now be deleted, but the remaining rule must detect
the others correctly...

Play with the info in src/classes.c until it works.
