This info should be in the README file for 2.4.2:

+ 	To build a 64-bit executable on an Itanium 2 system using HP's
+ 	compiler, use these environment variables:
+ 		CC=cc
+ 		CXX=aCC
+ 		LDFLAGS="+DD64 -lxnet"
+ 	and call configure as:
+ 		./configure --without-gcc

Did you do that?

If so, you will probably have to track this down.  LONG_BIT is supposed
to be there according to POSIX AFAIK.  It would mean the wrong header
file wasn't included (unlikely) or that some #define prevented it from
being defined (more likely).

Good luck,
