The latest released version of MC is 4.6.1 which is two and a half years old. The CVS version of MC includes a lot of changes and bugfixes compared to MC 4.6.1 so it would be better if you fetch a recent snapshot and build MC from it:

MC depends on either (n)curses or S-Lang for screen output - it appears that the version you fetched was built against S-Lang. I guess you have to 
find a copy of that library built for HP-UX - you should be looking for 
S-Lang versioned 1.4.x.

I do not have access to HP-UX right now but I remember that HP offered 
test access to some of their servers - I'll see whether there is a 
HP-UX machine in the list and try to build a recent copy of MC.

1) Find a pre-built HP-UNIX binary of S-Lang 1.4.x and install it

2) Fetch a MC snapshot from the MC homepage and build it
by passing --with-screen=mcslang to "configure"

Psssst! Schon vom neuen GMX MultiMessenger gehört?
