   Again, Tom is doing most of the work and has some comments on this at

For starters, I'd suggest the "<--!$Id$-->" be changed to "<!--$Id-->"
in that document :-).

   Other comments from WIN and VMS users have been "what about us?"

For VMS, there's my port of autoconf 1 (I'm still working on autoconf 2).
Most for autoconf 2 can be tweaked to work with autoconf 1 if
need be.

   This file is created by the configure script and contains platform
   specific definitions.  This will be mostly for UN*X systems.  The
   other platforms will need pre-built config.h files.  We might name
   these config.h-mswin, config.h-vms, etc.  This replaces the old

In the VMS case, and assuming autoconf is used there, there's no need
at all for a separate config.h.

What is needed is a separate for VMS (called configure.com_in)
and separate makefiles (for now, I support MMS (DECs "make" for VMS) and
MMK  (a free clone), so they'll be called things like descrip.mms_in and
in the case there is a, descrip.mms_in_in).  I've done
such work more than once.

   We need those alpha testers to try this out on all the systems Tom
   and I don't have, particularly SCO, HP, AIX, and DEC boxes.
