With 20/20 hindsight, a new set of macros should have been created that

But having a set of functions to easily swap commas for spaces and the
reverse would probably still be useful to add, as it would be more
convenient than the hack I had to use.

As far as I understand you are testing GNV, you are not testing VMS.

Currently I am testing VMS behavior. Once the remaining VMS test issues are resolved, then I will start adding the GNV code, and start running tests in both modes.

suprise that there are problems with the special variables, which have
comma delimiters ($+, $^, $?). I think I already said this, from my
point of view, a GNV GNU make should be separated from a VMS GNU make.

I only want one GNU make binary on my system that I can use anywhere I need to use GNU Make and have it just work.

Here, in commands.c, you want to have the FILE_LIST_SEPARATOR defined as
' ' and not as ',' as it is in the #if VMS: you need to turn off the VMS
macro or add an own GNV macro.

Or make it a runtime behavior based on the presence of getenv("SHELL") which GNU make is already checking for the other operating systems and adjusting its behavior.
