Thanks. I looked through them and it looks to me like the only
difference between what you did and what I did is that I treat any kind
of hpux as hpux whereas you only allow "9000*" or "ia64". Your way may
be more correct, but it adds a little clutter. I notice that the entry
for Solaris is "*" like what I did for hpux, so maybe that's okay too
for HP-UX? I'm wondering if there's some flavor of hpux that cfengine
doesn't want to support, or if it's just being cautious about new kinds
of hardware.

Cool...I may use that.

:) I was tempted to do something like that, but then I found the LDOPTS
trick to make it search archive before shared ("-a archive_shared").

Yes, thanks Chia.

I am hoping to see some kind of classes.c tweak for ia64 hpux in a
future version of cfengine. A comment about the HP-UX compiler flags and
having to install m4, bison and flex in the INSTALL file might also be
helpful. I could attempt a patch for that. Mark, any comments or advice?
