GCG used to be VMS specific but it is my impression that they now have
a UNIX version.  When I was at NIH they were just in the process of
getting the UNIX port up and running on a Convex multiprocessor
unix box.  I don't know how portable the code is though.  You might
want to ask them yourselves.  They are on the net. Maybe someone
can give their Email address.
