After more pondering, I think this would be a bad idea.  The only time
a 64-bit binary is likely to work would be if using the optionally
purchased HP C/ANSI C compiler.  Using gcc on HP-UX seems to have lots
of 64-bitness problems.

So how's this for a revised plan?
1) On HP-UX systems, build using mktemp()
2) Put a warning in the HP-UX section of the INSTALL file about this necessity
