Thanks. I have found the reason for your problem:

During the test whether the C++ compiler works, the following happens:

  configure:2886: c++ -o conftest    conftest.C  1>&5
  collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
  /bin/ld: Can't find library: "stdc++"

So, while you do have gcc maybe even g++, the installation of C++ is
not functional. configure detects this and disables a few things in the
top-level Makefile, e.g.:
  #! pdflib = pdftexdir/libpdf.a

I suggest that you either try to recompile gcc-3.3.1 (maybe, you
half-broken gcc can be used to compile a proper new version) or
to download a binary gcc from a hp-ux freeware site.
