Well the test for IA64 and not HP-UX would be "defined(__ia64) &&
!defined(__hpux)".  __hpux and __ia64 are defined by both the HP
compilers and GCC on IA64 HP-UX.  __hpux__ and __ia64__ are only defined
by GCC.  IA64 Linux GCC defines __ia64 and __ia64__ but not any of the
hpux macros.

Sounds like 1.6 is more in line with what I want (1.6.9 if not 1.6.8).
