Yes. I think beautifying the build environment wasn't really the goal.

There weren't sys$disk:[]s in all the places. In prepare_vms.com I
prefixed the parsed template file with one. It looked strange to search
with that prefix but then to have a result without. That broke the pipe
command, which I changed again to fit the 255 maximum of a DCL command
token (for versions prior to V8.2 of VMS).

In makefile.com, having objdir := sys$disk:[] but no such prefix in the
source file list and in the cc command seems to be inconsistent. I'm
still curious to see a problem without this prefix in the make build

Unfortunately VMS has no equivalent of "rm -f", delete/nolog isn't it.
But one can redirect the output of make.
