Complete inability to install under HP-U

I would have put this through the yahoo group, but I'm 
stuck behind a mind-bogglingly repressive firewall. SO 
I'll scream for help here, bearing in mind the dictum 
that in cyberspace no-one can hear you scream.

I have download 1.27.0, and am attempting to build and 
use Boost under HP-UX 11.00.

There are two problems, and I cannot tell if they are 
related or not. 

Firstly, the install instructions along the lines of

jam -sBOOST_ROOT=. -=sTOOLS="hpux"

simply produce the following (after I bodgied up a 

+: line 1304: yacc stack overflow at keyword }
don't know how to make all
...found 1 target...
...can't find 1 target...

after smacking my head on the desk for several days, 
I've given up on that one and attempted to build 
boost_1_27_0/libs/tuple/test/io_test.cpp using 

aCC -c +z +p $APP_INCLUDE -o io_test.o io_test.cpp

(where APP_INCLUDE is -I <yada/yada/yada> as 
appropriate) which results in 

"tuple_basic.hpp", line 290 # Cannot generate a 
specialization of incomplete template struct
        BOOST_STATIC_ASSERT(length<cons>::value == 
2); // check length =

and errors cascading after that. Looking at various 
messages and comments, I believe that someone 
somewhere has managed to get boost working under HP-
UX, but I'm dammned if I can. Help!

Oh yes, by the way, I'm stuck behind a repressive 
firewall and cannot even *read* the message archive at 
Yahoo, let alone subscribe / post! (Puts head down on 
desk and begins sobbing quietly)

Sorry, we know this is an ancient issue, but the aCC 
compiler has always had so many bugs that nobody's been 
very successful getting Boost libraries to compile with it.
