There should be no desperate problems with such a port. OpenVMS for AXP may run
on a 64 bit machine but its a 32 bit operating system. There is a 64 bit port
for OSF/1 in any case. The only real problem would be the library which might 
possibly have diverged and started using the odd crass UNIXism.

Any volunteers?
