I did it more or less manually a number of years ago.  ncurses can be
configured to use the native tables via a configure option.  It
contains a set of Cap files that define the native terminfo binary
formats for several systems, including HP-UX.  If the configure option
is not given, it assumes a standardized same binary layout.  It is
this standardized format that slang currently assumes.

I will look into providing an option to use a specified binary layout.
It is possible to allow the format to be specified at run-time instead
of assuming a statically specified layout, but I am not sure that will
actually be useful.
