I'm not sure if the code under 'case HP_UX' ever gets executed on HP-UX.
I.e., I'm not sure if "HP_UX" is the correct name for the platform.

>From one of your earlier postings, it appears that -Wl,--start-group is what
is killing linking on HP-UX. Since there is no case for HP-UX in 'switch
$(linker)', it looks like 'case gnu' is executed. In init, you need to add
case for linker on HP-UX. Something like:

        if [ ] = HPUX
            linker = hpux ;

And in init-link-flags, you need to add case for hpux. Again, look at how it
is done for osf.

Thanks - I still try to figure out how bjam v2 works (I believe some
changes have to be made).

This case int the switch shlould be remove because gcc (>= 3.x) supports
threads on HP/UX.
