Same here, both with bigcrypt and crypt. The problem may be that 
HPUX10.20 is just a version number. It might be more important to 
look at patch levels of the libraries.
My libc libs are from December 23, 1997. The libsec libraries are 
from June 3 (archive) or 4 (shared) 1997.
'what (1)' strings:
libc: PATCH-PHCO_13626 for 10.20
libsec: $Revision: $

I saw no difference for both mechanisms. I compiled the crypttest.c 
with and without -DHAVE_BIGCRYPT and with and without the libsec
