I'm not familiar with the project names so can you be clear about which
port(s) are used by HPE NonStop?  Do both of these efforts refer to the
VMS port?

In specific, I'm looking at the "VMS" preprocessor variable and all the
code ifdef'd using that, plus the extra source files such as vmsify.c,
vmsjobs.c, etc.  Is this what is used by the ITUGLIB project?

Does the NonStop OSS port use these as well, or does it configure
itself as a standard POSIX-style application and not use the VMS-
specific code?

A release candidate for 4.4 was made a week or so ago and a second one
will be made most likely this weekend.  It would be great if someone
could try those, that way we could resolve any issues found before the
release, rather than after.

However, I realize schedules don't always align so if it doesn't work
that's OK.
