FWIW, I've seen eprintf link failures on HPUX 10.20 as well.  I think
the key to avoiding it is that you have to build all the components with
the same compiler (all gcc, or all HP's).  If you want to link against a
precompiled ssl library then that will determine your choice of compiler.

I agree.  I don't have any trouble building the C++ library here,
using either hand-built gcc or HP's cc.  I let gcc install itself
in the usual place, ie, /usr/local.

The Porting Archive guys do good work, but their stuff gives headaches
if you want to mix and match it with stuff you build yourself.  They're
way too eager to mess around with install locations.

I'd recommend rebuilding gcc in a vanilla configuration, using the
porting archive gcc just for bootstrap purposes.
