Right.  This is even easier than I was thinking, really.  If this value
was defined in the appropriate pre-header file then an

# define PATH_SEPARATOR ":"

in make.h would suffice, wouldn't it?  So, I guess I'm basically suggesting
putting the PATH_SEPARATOR definition in: config.h-vms, config.h.W32, 

But, I dunno, maybe it's just overkill.  I was just trying to avoid a spurious
#ifdef test.
