Both methods are valid even on VMS 5.5. The problem is with SRSMAKE.COM in
that it assumes that on an AXP there is DEC-C and on a VAX it is VAX-C. In the
former case the compilation is performed with /STANDARD=VAXC . But in fact
there is nowadays DEC-C for VAXen as well. And in this case the above qualifier
is required on VAXen, too.

In addition I had to deal with the MAKEFILE, at least my version of MAKE for
VMS was a bit too restrictive (MMK).
