After reading the bug report at sourceforge
(see:
http://sourceforge.net/bugs/?func=detailbug&bug_id=110665&group_id=5470 )
and following the work around there. It seems to work fine.

What I did. --
Replacing all pthread_create in the configure file with
__pthread_create_system
and then adding -lcl to the Modules/Makefile:
LIBS=   -lpthread -lnsl -ldld -lcl
Then at leaste the "make test" doesn't core dumop anymore.
Oh, I used the --without-gcc option to the configure since I don't have
an updated version of gcc.

(Another work aound would be waitng for the python 2.0 binaries to appear at
http://hpux.connect.org.uk/ )

Cheers
Steinar
