I'm running XForms on both Linux and HP-UX 9.x. The compiler shipped with
HP systems is braindead and not of much use. I had to jump through some
hoops to get gcc/g++ working correctly because I don't have root access
to the HP machine and the sysadmin was too busy to help. Basically I had
to download the gcc source and rebuild the compiler. Why? Well, it seems
that gcc has some hardcoded path information and since I was installing the
compiler in my directory tree, those paths were different from those in the
binary-only distributions. Took maybe a day to get everything up and running
(would have been alot cleaner if the sysadmin could have done it though).
