I was hoping the next release of guile would be buildable on IA64 HP-UX.
The change that is needed is to modify libguile/continuations.c,
libguile/continuations.h, and libguile/gc.c to have ifdefs on IA64
instead of __ia64__.

IA64 is set in libguile/gc_os_dep.c only for IA64 Linux.  __ia64__ is set
by GCC (and other compilers) for both Linux and HP-UX.  But the code
that is under the __ia64__ ifdef is Linux specific and will not compile
on HP-UX.

I made the ifdef changes to guile 1.6.7 to test them and I still had a
bulid problem that I don't understand, the build of libguile seemed to
work fine but the overall libguile make died while making some

I don't know if this is a known issue or IA64 specific or what since I
am not that familiar with guile (I mostly just want to build autogen).
