If you prefer a target hook, I'm fine with that. I will write such a patch.

I don't think it must be restricted to system headers, as it is possible
that the user 'imports' such a function (and define it in one of VMS
favorite languages such as macro-32 or bliss).
If it's not restricted to system headers, then probably the option is
better than the target hook.

I'm not sure I understand the reasoning here. This seems fairly VMS specific so what is the downside for a target hook and user written headers?
