unfortunately I wasnt able to find a prototype for HP-UX getpasswd(),
also seems its API is inconsistent, f.e. I found this:
http://www.ucolick.org/~will/RUE/super/WhatsNew
    B.    Fix for HP-UX 11.0 with tcb enabled: the argument list of the
    (undocumented but essential) getpasswd() function has changed
    between 10.20 and 11.0.
therefore I went with your 1st suggestion and commited a fix to APR trunk:
http://svn.apache.org/viewvc?view=revision&revision=1070855
unless someone objects I will soon backport this fix to 1.4.x, 1.3.x and 0.9.x.
