Nothing major has changed in that area. But OK, I retried with the 7.15.5
version and:

checking for recv... yes
checking types of arguments and return type for recv... int,void *,int,int,int

Well, I would say that these errors also indicate that there's something on
your system that makes life hard for the preprocessor.

I don't have OpenSSL readily installed on my test-HPUX box so I couldn't
quickly do a test, but the OpenSSL checks have been the same for quite a while
and others have managed to build curl with it on that platform. With this
exact same curl version too.

Perhaps investigating the details of config.log and the particular checks that
fail can reveal something.
