[collectd] Unable to compile on HP-UX Itanium

Hi Dago,

at the moment I try to circumvent the problem with libgcrypt and others by using

/configure --with-libgcrypt=no --disable-all-plugins

To try just compile the basic daemon.

My attempts are not really random. ;-) They are the result of the few
posts I found with Google and some hints from the manual of pthread:

$ man pthread
      A multithreaded application must define the appropriate POSIX revision
      level (199506) at compile time and link against the pthread library
      with -lpthread.  For example:

           cc -D_POSIX_C_SOURCE=199506L -o myapp myapp.c -lpthread
     Note: When explicitly specifying ANSI compilation (with "-Aa"),
      defining the POSIX revision level restricts the program to using
      interfaces within the POSIX namespaces.  If interfaces in the larger
      X/Open namespace are to be called, either of the compiler options,
      -D_XOPEN_SOURCE_EXTENDED or -D_HPUX_SOURCE, must be specified in
      addition to -D_POSIX_C_SOURCE=199506L.  Alternatively, compiling with
      -Ae (or not specifying "-A") will implicitly specify -D_HPUX_SOURCE.

      Note: Some documentation will recommend the use of -D_REENTRANT for
      compilation.  Although this also functions properly, it is considered
      an obsolescent form.

so now I tried:
./configure --with-libgcrypt=no --disable-all-plugins CC="gcc
-lpthread -DBIG_ENDIAN"
./configure --with-libgcrypt=no --disable-all-plugins CC="gcc

both result in

$ make
