The VMS GNV package provides a build environment similar to POSIX with ports
of a collection of open source tools. The
gawk found in the GNV
base kit is an older port. Currently, the GNV project is being reorganized
to supply individual PCSI packages for each component.
The normal build procedure for
gawk produces a program that
is suitable for use with GNV.
The file vms/gawk_build_steps.txt in the distribution documents the procedure for building a VMS PCSI kit that is compatible with GNV.
