VMS is outputting extra blank lines in the output.

For example a recipe line "@continue" results in a blank line in the output.

I am patching my local copy of the test harness to not consider this a test
failure until I can fix this.

A simple makefile with
doesn't exhibit this, can you give an example?

It shows up in the recorded output for the test harness for features/conditionals test 3, after the makefile has been modified to use VMS syntax on when the test is run on VMS via DCL.

It does not show up when running the test interactively.

When I redirect sys$output to a file, I end up with two files instead of the one that is expected.

So there are a couple of odd things going on here.

I am not seeing the blank lines on other tests. I have not converted all the tests to use VMS syntax for the recipe lines though.
