I'd *love* to see VAX cured! For vax-linux, we currently use a quite
dated compiler which glibc refuses to build with...

Rumors tell me that it isn't much work to introduce vax-linux support
(after the VAX backend basically works again). I'm not really into gcc,
but where is (currently) the exact problem with VAX? Maybe I can at
least understand it:)
