With Perl 5.8.4, OpenVMS Alpha 7.3-1, MMS V3.3-4, MMK 3.9-6, I get the following results.

Using MMK, the build goes ok.  Most tests pass, except basic.t, which has the following problem:

# %DCL-W-TKNOVF, command element is too long - shorten
#  \DSA0:[SYS0.SYSCOMMON.PERL-5_8_4]PERL.EXE -E "chdir 'liar.dir';  system 'MMK/MACRO=(TEST_VERBOSE="1") test /Macro=(LIBPERL_A="LIBPERL.OLB",      LINKTYPE="DYNAMIC",     OPTIMIZE="/NOLIST",     PREFIX="../DUMMY-INSTALL",      DESTDIR="",     PASTHRU_DEFINE="")'
 if -f 'Descrip
# %MMK-F-ERRUPD, error status %X000382A0 occurred when updating target TEST

Aside from the command being too long, there is a problem with having
multiple /MACRO qualifiers on the command line; they need to be
combined into one qualifier, though in this case all it means is that
TEST_VERBOSE will be ignored.


With MMS, I can't build MakeMaker at all and get the following error:

$ mms
%MMS-F-LEXNULLNAME, Encountered null filename on line 365.

Line 365 contains:

blibdirs : $(INST_LIBDIR) $(INST_ARCHLIB) $(INST_AUTODIR) $(INST_ARCHAUTODIR) $(INST_BIN) $(INST_SCRIPT) $(INST_MAN1DIR) $(INST_MAN3DIR)
        $(NOECHO) $(NOOP)

I believe the INST_* macros are considered null file specifications
because they are just directory specs like [.foo.bar] rather than
file specs like [.foo]bar.dir.  I thought we had gone back to using
.exists files rather than directories, so I'm not sure what to
suggest here.
