We just transfered from GCG-VAX to GCG-UNIX.  Our system administrator did
all the serious changes, and I was responsible for instructing my co-
workers on the transition of our account.  I'm not sure what your asking, 
but it seems that with our SystemV UNIX system, the transfer was pretty 
painless.  I think GCG provided a new version adapted for our UNIX machine.
I don't think you can just transfer the VAX version.  Good Luck, and drop 
me a note if you think I can be of any real help.
