I have performed an installation of grass4.1 on an HP9000/720 (HPUX v 8.02) with X11R4.
During compilation I reported the following problems:

Gave -in a first run- a "cc Internal error 7816". However, at a second
attempt, the day after, the error was no longer reported (???)

and /src.alpha/imagery/i.smap
/bin/ld found duplicate symbols: G_alloc_ivector
in /src/libes/LIB/libgis.a (ialloc.o)

/includes.h  9: X11/Xos.h
/includes.h 11: X11/Xlib.h

There are a couple of things (I thought of) that maybe could be held
 responsible for some of the misbehaving:

- In the setup script, I was not able to specify the XIntrinsics path
- I gave no compilation flags to the compiler
- I used no XEXTRALIBS

I thank anybody who will give me some advice. The best thing would be to have
a log of another installation on the same type of system to follow the right
steps and to specify all the correct parameters.
