Thanks for getting back to me.  I have responded to your
questions below.  There is one other issue I discovered after
sending my initial email yesterday.

When using the aCC compiler to compile the demos programs,
the -AA argument is also required (same issue).  However,
the libraries are different.  

Instead of setting LIB in demo/Makefile to: 

LIB = -lstdc++

it must be:

LIB = -lstd_v2 -lCsup_v2 

Thanks again for your help.

Yes, you can run:

% aCC -V
aCC: HP ANSI C++ B3910B A.03.26

Now, this gets a little tricky.  I'm assuming you want to make the
configure script as generic as possible, so I did a little digging
to try to figure out when the -AA option was introduced.  Without
the -AA option, namespaces are not supported, header files
are different (i.e. there is no <iostream> header file), and libraries
are different.  So its a big deal.

I assume there are at least two ways you could solve this.  First,
you could check for the aCC compiler and then try the -AA argument
to see if it works, or you could compare on the version numbers.
The later would be quite tricky, as there are now three release
streams for aCC, so you would need to check for:
        at least A.01.21 on HP-UX 10x,
        at least A.03.26 on HP-UX 11x, or
        at least A.05.30 on HP-UX 11.20

I don't have easy access to an old version of aCC, so I don't know if
grep'ing for 'ANSCI C++' is safe.  If you want me to check further on
this, let me know and I can figure it out.  However, from looking at
the configure script, I think a common practice is to try it out, if
it works it must be supported, so that would probably be the easiest
solution here?

Yes, here's (some of) the output from the preprocessor:

#line 30
 std:: ostream&
 cgicc:: operator<<( std:: ostream& out,
 const MStreamable& obj)
 return out;

Here are the compile errors I get when I don't include those macros:
(The compiler can't find the def'n for the MStreamable class.)

aCC -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I. -I. -AA -I.. -I.. -g -c MStreamable.cpp  +Z

And adding those name space macros fixes the problem.
I am not able to explain why.
