[patch@34044] Enable getgrgid on VMS
Message ID:
Even though was detecting the getgrgid and friends, they 
were not being configured because HAS_GROUPS was not defined in vmsish.h.

Even though the functions are now active, the perl tests do not work 
because VMS does not have either an id or groups command.

The GNV package has an id command, and when GNV is better integrated 
with Perl this will have to be addressed.

On VMS, there is no way for a non-privileged user to directly get a list 
of the users or the groups for verifying the function.  A non-privileged 
user can lookup a specific username, uid, gid, or group name.
