The HPUX headers are self-consistent, no?  They define
UINT_FAST8_MAX to UINT_MAX and uint_fast8_t to unsigned int.
The gnulib stdint.h is also self-consistent, using unsigned
long int instead.  The problem is that somehow they clash.

I still don't understand fully how they clash, unfortunately.
It appears that the problem is that the gnulib stdint.h defines
UINT_FAST8_MAX one way, and HP-UX limits.h another.  But I don't
see how that could happen, since gnulib stdint.h includes
HP-UX limits.h, and then redefines UINT_FAST8_MAX.  Could you
investigate that?
