For a lark I tried the "recipe" instructions on a 715/64 
running HPUX 9.05.  A coupla notes:

1) You need to install flex.  Perhaps also some autoconf stuff
and a native HPUX gcc in addition to the cross compiler,
too; those I already had so I wouldn't have noticed if they

2) You need to export CONFIG_SHELL=/linux/bin/bash before

3) You need to edit linux/scripts/mkdep.c and take out

where.)  Substitute a constant (4096, it appears from

-fomit-frame-pointer -mdisable-fpregs -fwritable-strings
 -pipe -fno-strength-reduce  -c -o init/main.o init/main.c

I don't know how much of this might be recent CVS breakage and how
much is due to the crusty OS, but I hope this is of help to
