OK, an unmodified gnulib-tests/setenv.c from idutils 4.5 reports this
when compiled with HP's ANSI C compiler on HP-UX 11.11 (PA-RISC platform)
via the "gmake check" command:

  CC       setenv.o
cc: "setenv.c", line 151: error 1647: Illegal integer-pointer combination for 
second and third operands of conditional expression (?:).
cc: "setenv.c", line 151: error 1527: Incompatible types in cast: Must cast 
from scalar to scalar or to void type.

As I said earlier, the fix is to cast the return values from malloc() and
realloc() to (char *), which seem to satisfy the HP compiler.
