Oh, it occurred to me: this is probably because APR is using the native
HP-UX getpass(), which only accepts 8 character passwords, and your
password is longer than 8 characters - this problem cropped up before
with Solaris.

You should be able to force use of APR's getpass() replacement by
setting "export ac_cv_func_getpass=no" before you run configure.
