Confirmed Amit's issue on HP-UX 11.11 ... something is broken on this OS
version - appears to be compiler-independent ... as he's getting it via the
HP cc, and I'm seeing it in gcc as well.

target hppa2.0w-hp-hpux11.11 using gcc 4.1.1

./configure  - MOSTLY OK
checking whether vsnprintf returns correct values on overflow... no
configure: WARNING: ****** Your vsnprintf() function is broken, complain to
your vendor
checking whether snprintf can declare const char *fmt... yes
checking if setrlimit RLIMIT_FSIZE works... yes
./configure[12173]: ==: A test command parameter is not valid.
checking for long long... yes
checking if your system defines _PATH_LASTLOG... no
configure: WARNING: ** Cannot find lastlog **
checking if your system defines UTMP_FILE... yes
              Host: hppa2.0w-hp-hpux11.11
          Compiler: gcc
    Compiler flags: -g -O2 -Wall -Wpointer-arith -Wuninitialized
-Wsign-compare -Wformat-security -Wno-pointer-sign -fno-strict-aliasing
-D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2 -fno-builtin-memset -std=gnu99
Preprocessor flags: -I/var/tmp/ssh/include  -D_HPUX_SOURCE -D_XOPEN_SOURCE
      Linker flags: -L/var/tmp/ssh/lib
         Libraries: -lcrypto -lz -lnsl -lxnet  -lsec

WARNING: the operating system that you are using does not appear to support
getpeereid(), getpeerucred() or the
SO_PEERCRED getsockopt() option. These facilities are used to enforce
security checks to prevent unauthorised connections to
ssh-agent. Their absence increases the risk that a malicious user can
connect to your agent.

Doesn't seem to matter if shell is /usr/bin/ksh, /usr/bin/sh, or
/usr/old/bin/sh - same results either way ...
