Can you try sed 4.1f too?  I fixed the AIX failure and tried XFAILing
the utf8-* tests where they do not work.  The XFAILing should work on
HP-UX and Windows; I do not have access to Solaris.

Skipping is okay. :-)

It may also be a problem with the system malloc, for example returning
ENOMEM for a zero-byte request.  If you are familiar with gnulib, you
can try applying this patch to checked out sources and rerunning

diff --git a/autoboot.conf b/autoboot.conf
index 9147981..20a5a0b 100644

(Of course if you do not have the required tools on your HP-UX machine,
you can do this on a Linux box, do "./configure && make && make dist",
and use the resulting tarball on the HP-UX box).
