I have built Perl and SybPerl on a "HP-UX segal B.10.20 A 9000/712
2012641838 two-user license" using the HP ansi C compiler. If you read
the blurb about configure you can target another directory rather than
the default for your installation. You will need to do that because not
being root you can't install it in the default location.
If I understand correctly Perl is already made and you are building
SybPerl to hook up with the already installed Perl but you need SybPerl
to be in another area because you aren't root. I don't know how to do
that but would suspect that configure would have some defines for that.
