I have done my damage to

It seems to work on VMS and did not make anything explode visibly on
OS X.  Hopefully Win32 will be ok as well.  The description files
produced are identical to what we got using  Some of it
probably needs prettification and simplification.  For example, I have
no idea why we have always passed INST_LIB and INST_ARCHLIB nor whey
everybody else passes INSTALLDIR and INSTALLMAN3DIRS as pass-through
arguments, but I decided to start off with a bug-for-bug compatible
implementation and worry about the rest later.

Now on to getting the VMS build to use this.
