The following configure message:

checking where the main texmf tree is located... not found
configure: warning: The main texmf tree was not found.
  Specify the location of its parent directory with the --datadir option.
  If you do not have the files, you can retrieve a minimal set from
  ftp://ftp.tug.org/tex/texklib.tar.gz, which is mirrored on CTAN hosts
  in systems/web2c.  Winging it by using the default location

is almost always a bad sign, and you should try to get rid of it.
(Is there in fact a share/texmf tree in
which you have specified as --prefix?)

I don't see how this error is related to xdvik - it seems to be
a compilation error with libtiff (which is not needed for xdvik)?

FWIW, Thomas Esser reported that the latest release of xdvik,
22.40n, compiles OK on HP-UX-(can't remember the exact version).
Could you try to upgrade to that version, using e.g. the
procedure described in item (b) on
