Sounds like your system isn't generating enough entropy to me, which can
affect SSL/TLS connections on lots of protocols. I have no experience of
HP/UX though, so suggestions are limited...

Which SSL libraries are you compiling mod_ssl against? OpenSSL, or some
HP ones? Do you have /dev/random and /dev/urandom?

If you do "cat /dev/random" and "cat /dev/urandom", what comes back?
It'll be garbage, but do the rates differ significantly?

When you start up this new Apache instance, what does it log in the
error log?
