Follow-up Comment #1, bug #41758 (project make):

I have attached a preliminary patch to the default.c module that fixes the
library rules as follows:

1. Create the library if it does not exist when inserting a module into the

2. Support all the types of library that VMS does.  Tests still need to be
written for that.

3. Fixes the rcs rules so they have a chance of working.  Of course since
no-one noticed that they did not work due to a syntax error, it might be time
to just remove them.

4. Add a bunch of missing rules.  VMS should have almost all the same rules as
Unix plus some more for VMS specific file extensions and commands.

The features/archive preliminary patch now allows passing of 8 out of 10 test

The failures are:
*   The libxxx(a3.o *.o) test.  I still need to investigate
    that issue.

*   The bug #32442 test.  I suspect that the vpath is
    not being honored for VMS library lookups.

(file #31252, file #31253)
