Re: Configure patch for vfork et al on VMS


The command line length test as written returns a value of 97 for VMS.

Before it hits the 1024 byte command element limit, it hits the largest POSIX 
compatible exit code of 255 that expr can return or rather a value that when
doubled exceeds 255. The value is 129 which is then reduced by 1/4 giving 97.
