To make it clear what to do / not to do:

hpux OS support to be deleted, that is:
  hppa-hpux delete
  ia64-hpux delete (other ia64 support still should remain intact)
hppa-linux and hppa-openbsd support should remain intact (also hppa in general)
hp_cc_compiler+hp_aCC_compiler in testsuite - I do not know

Do you agree?
