 As far as I know, 3.3 is OK.  However, the current release branch (3.2)
 is still broken and I doubt it can be fixed without an unacceptable
 amount of changes to real.c.  The 3.2 branch can be built with the
 native compiler.  3.3 currently can't.
 
 At some point, I plan to change vax.h back to not using the emulator
 on the 3.2 branch.  This was the way it was before 3.1/3.2.  This will
 fix the problem for native compilers but it won't be possible to build
 a working cross compiler.
