patch to add utmps support for HP-UX 11.23 and above

Sorry guys,
   While my patch fixes logging on 11.23 there are some major issues  
when building on 11.31 (basically it builds fine and while all the  
client code works as expected sshd just hangs on connects waiting for  
communication it never sees).

Since I'm not happy with the way I did the first patch (works fine  
but does not match the rest of the [uw]tmp code well enough for me,  
please hold off even looking until I get back with an over all 11.23  
& 11.31 patch.

I do have the utmps code all inline with the rest already but since  
11.31 still is DOA I want to incorporate that fix in and just make it  
an overall HP-UX patch (I will test on 11.00, 11.11, 11.23 and 11.31  
which is all the versions I have access to).

Sorry for the noise.
