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.

which you have specified as --prefix?)

FWIW, Thomas Esser reported that the latest release of xdvik,
22.40n, compiles OK on HP-UX-(can't remember the exact version).
