When you ask VMS Make what features it supports, "archives" is in the list.

There is librarian support, as can be seen in default.c where AR is set
to "library/obj" and ARFLAGS to "/replace". It is known that the VMS
librarian and Unix ar behave differently. For example, librarian expects
an object library to exist for the "/replace" command while ar's "r"
command just creates a non-existing archive. So there is "some" support.
Maybe the feature shouldn't be set.

When you run the features/archives test, it fails.

features/archives .......................................

As I understand, to run the tests you need gnv. So you are using gnv and
bash and not "plain" VMS. However, for VMS this is not really surprising:
$ write sys$output f$message(%x1086109c)
%LIBRAR-F-OPENIN, error opening !AS as input

I had the pre-test setup create the library and it still failed.

The pre-test setup uses the GNV AR command which actually is just a wrapper to the the VMS librarian command.

It should be possible get this fixed so that VMS can create the library if needed.
