Not that I am aware of, but someone else here may know more.

The effort to port to HP-UX and AIX is going to center mostly on
Qpid's I/O layer and event handling. Linux, Windows, Solaris ports all
use their own OS facilities that are most favorable to performance on
that platform; AIX and HP-UX needs a similar bunch of code to be
developed. It's possible they can use the same one (maybe
select()-based) to get going quickest, though that may not yield the
best performance.

There will also be some work for threading and synchronization but I
expect this can pretty much reuse the same code as Linux - it's plain

Figure a couple of months of work to get this going.

I have these types of machines available if you decide to pursue this
effort and want help porting it.
