Compiling Python 2.1 on HP-UX 11.00 works for me. I have used
the following compler:

B3899BA B.11.01.07      HP C/ANSI C Developer's Bundle for HP-UX 11.00 (S700) 
B3911DB B.11.01.06      HP aC++ Compiler  (S700)

I found a solution for the _curses problem. For that, a Python header
file has to be changed. In py_curses.h exchange the line with

#include <curses.h>


#include <curses_colr/curses.h>

This will include a matching header file for HP-UX 11.00. To get _termios
to work, I have no idea.
