At line 790, the constant AI_PASSIVE is used without doing a ifdef check 
(like done at around 5235).

Are you sure it isn't defined somewhere? HP claims it exists:

On the other hand, it seems commenting out this line doesn't harm any
existing test, so we could enable it conditionally.

Yes, I even tried grep'ing the system header files. BTW, the build works 
fine on a newer HP-UX machine (11.22), whereas it fails only on a 
particular older version:

$ uname -a
HP-UX bertha B.11.00 U 9000/800 136901587 unlimited-user license

The documentation link you gave is applicable to 11i (which is >= 

So I presume that AI_PASSIVE was made available only in later versions 
of HP-UX.

BTW, this bug no longer occurs with Python trunk (or 2.7a2). 

I took at look at the vcs history and couldn't find any changes related to this.
