New(er) binaries for HP and SGI

I uploaded new binaries for HP and SGI (218 programs each) to
The Linux set is in the making.

The build process under hpux and irix is still rather problematic. Mostly 
due to the Makefiles which HP and SGI can't handle (reported previously),
but also the @MAINTAINER_MODE_TRUE@ (?) which slipped into the sources.

I had to apply XXX patches on these two architectures to build the programs,
so don't blame me :-)...


On all architectures (including Solaris and Linux), the build process 
breaks down in the teTeX directory - where building includes a call 
to 'texconfig init', which needs the file, which is not found...
texmf-local tree (there is none) with (at least), or initialising in texmf-var would be good.

Is it possible - in texlive/Master source - to replace the 
teTeX-1.0/texk/xdvik/ file with a modified version with which 
SGI and HPUC could cope? The file doesn't seem to be auto-generated 
by anything and the patch is trivial.
