It's dying on the make?  That's unusual.  I know at least one person had
gotten a successful compile on 10.20, but not a usable target.  Have you
looked in the PROBLEMS file?  HP-UX 10.02 and up have a broken select()
which usually allows it to compile properly, but the resulting binary will
core dump.  There are two ways to fix this problem.  The best is to get
the patch from HP to fix the OS because it causes problems with stuff
other than Lynx.  The second is to follow the workaround mentioned in the
PROBLEMS file and use the snake3 target.  Have you tried the solution in
the PROBLEMS file?  The problem you're experiencing may be another version
of the problem mentioned there.

If that doesn't work, or if you've already applied the patch, get back to
us with more details about what it's doing when it aborts the make.  Also,
be sure to do a 'make clean' before trying a new target in the Makefile.
