    pdftex undefined reference to _mkstemps expected to be defined in 

mkstemps?  I've heard of mkstemp but not mkstemps.

I don't know if it will help, but there's a replacement function
available for mkstemp; if you use the GNU configuration stuff from
coreutils (on ftp://alpha.gnu.org) or gnulib (on
http://savannah.gnu.org) to check for it, it will get used on HP-UX, as
it happens.  I just did this for Texinfo, I'll append my notes below,
for whatever they're worth.

for mktemp, need these files (including adding to EXTRA_DIST):
$GNULIBSRC/m4/check-decl.m4	m4
$GNULIBSRC/m4/mkstemp.m4	m4
$GNULIBSRC/m4/prereq.m4		m4
$GNULIBSRC/lib/tempname.c	lib
$GNULIBSRC/lib/mkstemp.c	lib

then in configure.ac:
  AC_REQUIRE([jm_PREREQ_TEMPNAME])dnl for mkstemp
