pdftotext / PDF conversion to .txt binaries

Good day,

I've been trying to look for a way to compile the Xpdf sources in our HP-UX server, but have been failing to do so because there is no GCC installed, and I don't have privileges to install GCC. I was looking for a functionality to convert PDF files to .txt, which is exactly like the one described in XPDF:

Xpdf: Download

But they do not have a download of the binaries for HP-UX. They did mention that there has been some who have successfully compiled it for HP-UX. If anyone has downloadable binaries for HP-UX for pdftotext, then I would really appreciate it.
