But still not that close on VMS. For starters, here are some things I
noticed:

1.) There are several instances of the string:

bin/instmodsh

in various targets, though EXE_FILES does now show instmodsh in native
syntax.

2.) The ci target has a single command that is too long for the command
buffer.

3.) The IGNORE prefix needs to have space after it and before the
command it prefixes. This is the same as for the SILENT prefix. However,
when both prefixes appear together, there must be no space between the
two prefixes but there must be space before the command they prefix. See
section 2.6.4 of your MMS manual.


4.) The following macro is defined and is used in the shdist target:

SHAR = vms_share

There is no such native command as vms_share. If I knew more about the
intention, I might be able to suggest an alternative.
