Tom, wrt HPUX on pa-risc, what are your thoughts there? IIRC we gave up
supporting HP's compiler on pa-risc a while ago.

As I said it'd probably not be too hard to add meson support for hpux on hppa,
it's probably just a few branches. But that'd require access somewhere. The
gcc compile farm does not have a hppa member anymore...

I did notice that gcc will declare hppa-hpux obsolete in gcc 12 and will
remove at some point:
"The hppa[12]*-*-hpux10* and hppa[12]*-*-hpux11* configurations targeting 32-bit PA-RISC with HP-UX have been obsoleted and will be removed in a future release."
