I would suggest waiting until the source for Arena is released, then porting 
that. I suspect the multi-threaded stuff should port fairly cleanly onto the 
Posix threads in OpenVMS; you may need to watch out for 32-bit-isms as I doubt 
the code will be 64-bit clean (? Does Arena have an AXP OSF/1 port? If so 
that problem should be taken care of.)

In the meantime, you could look at the multi-threaded version of the W30 
common code library and see how that ports to Posix threads.

Suggest you mail the Arean team marked attention Phill Hallam-Baker, who 
will be able to give you a considered opinion about how readily the code 
will port to OpenVMS. I think Digital have finally moved from X11R4 to X11R5
so there should be few problems there.
