There are a couple of oddities related to bash and configure but make and Makefiles work pretty well as long as you stick to Unix
format file specifications.
1) THere's a length limit on *individual* elements that can be passed in argv via
fork/exec, approximately 1024 characters (see my recent patch submission to top
2) File position in a redirected common output file isn't preserved from
non-trivial commands that execute in a subshell, for example gcc/mkconfig.sh
doesn't quite work on VMS as is. I'll be submitting a patch later this week.
