The new file vmsdbg.h does not include a copyright or licence notice.
The instructions for GNU maintainers require that all files more than ten
lines long contain a copyright notice or a notice that they are placed in
the public domain.

vmsdbg.h uses VMSDBG_H as the multiple include guard, but a while back we
established a convention for these guards by which it should be
GCC_VMSDBG_H.

vmsdbgout.c uses a range of years (1997-2001) in the copyright notice, but
the instructions for GNU maintainers say:

	Do not abbreviate the year list using a range; for instance, do not
	write `1996--1998'; instead, write `1996, 1997, 1998'.

vmsdbgout.c includes the old FSF address in the copyright notice; it
should include the current one rather than one invalid for several years.
(config/ia64/freebsd.h and config/rs6000/freebsd.h are also guilty of
reintroducing the old address.)

vmsdbgout.c's copyright and licence notice refers to "GNU CC", but files
in the gcc directory (maybe not yet subdirectories) were changed some time
ago to say "GCC".  (langhooks* and tree-inline.* are also guilty of
reintroducing this old terminology.)
