Python 2.3.3 compilation problems an HP-UX

I'm having some problems compiling Python 2.3.3 on HP-UX (B.11.00).
I've tried sevral different options for the configure script (e.g. 
enabling/disabling gcc, aCC) but I always get the same problem during 
the final linking stage. Several PyThread_* symbols are undefined (for 
details see the output below).

In order to get DCOracle2 support working I've also set the LDFLAGS 
environment variable to "-lpthread -lcl" (as mentioned in the 
README.HP-HX file).

I would really appreciate any advice!

Here's the output of the final stage of my build process:
