I don't think so. With the change in the libaudio Imakefile you're on
the safe side.
If libaudio.so isn't linked against libXau.so, programs that link
against libaudio.so have to be linked against libXau explicitly.
AFAIK this has to be done under HP-UX anyway, so HPPA users should be
used to this procedure :-)
