You don't mention what your architecture is (hppa-1.1, hppa-2.0 or hppa-2.0w)
and you also do not mention which C compiler you want to use.

HP-UX is shipped with a crippled C-compiler that is *not* ANSI compliant and
only serves the purpose of rebuilding a kernel when installing updates or
changing system configuration parameters.

Read README.hpux for more detail

There are several good HP-UX mirrors that provide precompiled binaries of perl,
so that one does not need the (expensive) HP C compiler. An example is

You can also get a recent copy of the GNU C compiler (gcc), but building perl
(at least until /very/ recent versions) with gcc on HP-UX is supported, but
not very fluent (you probably need to know quite well what you are doing
before starting that adventure)

Why 5.005_03 and not 5.6.1?
