first of all do I need to update the configure script using autoconf, and
if so how do I do that.

I tried testing the HPUX installation today, but I wasn't pleased with it.
Latex (and others) seems to stop for a little while before starting
causing longer runtime.

Dvips complained about some dvips: 

Bad syntax in included font usage table 3d:8 

etc. But worked, at least until I (by accident) runned updmap, then
it started using mf font where it should by standard (it does on my linux
version) be using PS fonts.

Also shouldn't texconfig also create all the format files, it didn't look
like it did, I used fmtutil --all instead.

Right now I'm compiling a new version, I'm trying not to use the
--without-cnxx-runtime-hack (I think that was what is was called) and no
xdvi stuff.

I think that some of my dvips problems might be caused by the fact that I
have another TeXLive installation further down my path. Beacuse now that
dvips complains about 

Bad syntax in included font usage table 3d:8

I have no idea on how to recover from this
