I'm afraid that can't be done.
It's not possible to write a secure path-safe
modern application without the XXXXat() calls.
That's why we're moving to require them.
HPUX kernel will have to add these calls,
or the HPUX ecosystem can't be maintained
going forward. Sorry for the bad news :-(.
Either that or you'll have to add mappings
in your libc to emulate these calls, but
that won't be secure I'm afraid.
