OPT variable in the top-level Makefile; reported by Pat Knight,
this seems to make a difference (at least for HP-UX 10.20)
- even though pyconfig.h defines it. There appears to be a problem
- with HP-UX's interactions with autoconf that causes breakage.
- The workaround is to edit the generated pyconfig.h after running
- configure - see http://www.python.org/2.3.1/bugs.html for details.

+HP-UX ia64: When building on the ia64 (Itanium) platform using HP's
+ compiler, some experience has shown that the compiler's
+ optimiser produces a completely broken version of python
