If want cc just do
$ CC=cc configure

Hmm, If you have autoconf on your system you could add
AC_CHECK_LIB(sec, getspnam) to your configure.in and rebuild configure
Then the question becomes where best to put it.
If -lsec is unique to HPUX it should probably go with the
*hpux*) AC_DEFINE(HPUX);; line in the case "$host_os" in section.
