[Veritas-bu] Warning about HP-UX 11.11 patch PHSS_38154

PHSS_38154 supersedes a bunch of patches listed as being required in the NetBackup 6.5 release notes.
Unfortunately, it ALSO supersedes PHSS_30968, a patch which "Symantec recommends that you do not install". They recommend that because if you do install it, bpbkar on a client being backed up fails (before doing anything) with the message "aCC runtime: Use of "-mt" must be consistent during both compilation and linking." (I think this has something to do with linking with the OS's pthreads library and differences between the HP and Veritas build chains, but don't quote me on that.)
We're awaiting response from each vendor but, for now, if your HP Account Advocate suggests you install patch PHSS_38154 on any HP-UX 11.11 system where you run NetBackup (really, any: this affects the client portion's behavior), don't do it.
