Thanks for the information. Apparently the trouble is that on the 64 bit 
compile, sizeof(int) < sizeof(socklen_t). Since daemon.c uses socklen_t 
and the default HPUX implementation uses int, accept() sees a zero 
passed for the addrlen. There are probably other reasons to use 
-D_XOPEN_SOURCE hiding in there too.
