You are correct, I haven't looked into doing the tests due to lack of
time. As for autobuilds, I'm not sure how much effort it would take
to make it automatic. I haven't seen an autoconfig that works well on
VMS. That's not to say there isn't one, I just haven't seen it.
Currently the build is a brute force build that usually requires a bit
of tinkering in the config-vms.h file.

In the download area I currently provide three zips. One each for
VAX, AXP and IA64. Each zip has the object libraries and executables
for noSSL, hpSSL and OpenSSL. I haven't had a chance to look into
providing PCSI kits, but I would be interested in how you went about
building the kits. I'd much rather look at a working example, than
try to read the fine manual, myself. :)
