We run a HP-UX B.10.01 A 9000/847
I had nothing to begin with, so I had to get and install all the needed
packages from scratch:

from Adobe
        - acroread_hpux_301_tar.gz

from gnu
        - gcc-2_8_1_tar.gz
        - make-3_77_tar.gz

        - libstdc++-2_8_1_tar(1).gz
        - libg++-2_7_2_tar.gz
        - libstdc++-2_8_1_1_tar(1).gz

of course, only one of these 3 libs is needed, but as I was struggling
with a pb totally unrelated (wrong make) but that was complaining about
the library, I gradually downloaded more and more; I can't say exactly
which one exactly is the right one; I believe it is the libstdc++

from htdig
        - htdig-pdf_tar.gz
        - htdig-3_0_8b2_tar.gz

and I added the patches described by Sylvain for PDF and the patch for
htcommon/ (I can't remember why).

Took me a while to do all this, but it worked pretty easily.

Hope this helps.

PS: indeed, it is a long install process; I have posted a porting
request on, hoping a good soul will create a
HP executable install package
