globalvalue is visible in /STANDARD=VAXC and /STANDARD=RELAXED which is

extension'? The default gives at least fair diagnostics for VAXC
problems. At the moment gnu make is compiled either without a standard
switch or the /STANDARD=RELAXED, but with
/WARNING=(DISABLE=QUESTCOMPARE). In stricter modes you can use something

#include <stdio.h>
extern unsigned int LBR$_HDRTRUNC;
int main (void) {
         printf ("LBR$_HDRTRUNC: %%x%08x\n", &LBR$_HDRTRUNC);

I will change the code to use an extern not as efficient as a constant, but the code is not on section that would really notice the difference in speed.

and you may want to add at least DOLLARID to the disabled warning messages.

I plan on looking at the compiler options in the future. They will be come more relevant when implementing dynamic loaded modules.

I consider /standard=vaxc == ignore potential bugs.

I will look at doing that in a future patch.  It appears that the
UNIVERSAL qualifier is ignored by non-VAX, so is not causing a problem.

Like "%LINK-I-OPTIGNALPHA, UNIVERSAL option ignored; not allowed for AXP
images" but
%ILINK-F-OPTSYNERR, syntax error in options file ...
-ILINK-E-OPTLIN, options line in error
I didn't try the tests on I64, but the -F should trigger something.

I was not seeing this, but will remove it from the next patch. I will not be posting an updated patch until next week though.
