..seems that there are indeed problems ...probably only on old versions
of openvms 1.x ...we have 6.1!

i think the problem is in either the file etc/prep_srs.com or etc/srsmake.com
they both do a test to find out whether they run on openvms or vax/vms ...the
test use different methods

this is from prep_srs.com

$ !~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
$ ! find out operating system and define a symbolic name
$ !
$ if f$getsyi ("HW_MODEL") .gt. 1024
$ then
$  OS_SPECIFIC = "ALPHA"
$ else
$  OS_SPECIFIC = "VAX"
$ endif

and this from srsmake.com:

$ ! find out whether script is running on an alpha or not
$ !
$ if f$getsyi ("ARCH_NAME") .eqs. "Alpha"
$ then
$  ...
$ else
$   ...
$ endif
$ !

i think the latter test is relatively new and might not be supported by
old openvms versions ...could you please find out....and mail me the results
