If you think it's a compiler bug we should definitely let HP know
about it. If you put together a small test case that reproduces it
I'll be happy to forward it to HP.

As to how to deal with it, one approach would be for SourcePro to
use the traditional naming convention for the stdcxx library (i.e.,
libstd<built-type>.sl, such as instead of just

I don't think using an absolute pathname when linking with libstd
is the way to go (it would assume the lib will always be present
at that location which is unlikely).
