I think it is actually a compiler, library, and operating system
issue. There are several compilers available under HP-UX. GCC and HP's
own, for example.

So you are correct that it isn't just a compiler issue since GCC, for
example, is available on other systems. But it isn't just a OS issue
either; not all compilers or libraries for HP-UX necessarily use HP's
__inttypes.h header. Messy, for sure.

That's why I don't want to put code in config.hpp unless it has been
checked by someone on the actual system involved.
