We actually managed to get HPUX (on PA-RISC) working reasonably well 
early last year.  We didn't attempt porting a few of the parts I 
considered optional, like winedbg, oleaut32, and opengl.  Still, it ran 
some pretty significant applications (i.e., mine :-) very well. 

The assembly code generated for HPUX is a bit different from the other 
platforms, and all of the ifdefs in winebuild were getting pretty hard 
to follow.  I'm hoping the recent changes to winebuild will make it 
easier to integrate, whenever I get around to updating...  Until that 
happens, if anyone needs HPUX winelib, I'll be happy to send a tar of my 
working copy.  It works on HPUX 11 and 11i, and maybe others.

The Sparc Solaris version of winelib we use works on at least Solaris 7, 
8, and 9.  It was working on Solaris 2.6 at one point, but we no longer 
have a machine that old to test on.
