A Brazilian user has contacted me in private (because he felt more
comfortable writing in Portugues :-) in the hope that I'd know how to
solve the problem, and he.  Unfortunately, I didn't, as I don't know
anything about HP/UX.

But then, he contacted HP/UX support in Brazil and, although they
don't officially support Samba, someone in there got interested in
fixing the problem, and apparently he had to enable support for fcntl
in the kernel or some system configuration option.  Unfortunately, I
don't have details.

He also reported some problems on the binary packager for HP/UX, that
seems to assume an objdir=srcdir building environment.
