I will try. I am not familiar with using git though.

I can not build from a locally fetched git repository on VMS as I need
the configure and as autoconf is not currently working on

I have to build off of either a released kit or one of the daily downloads.

This was an unusually large patch because everything was dependent on
each other.

I will run that script before the next submission.

Sorry for the late response. The system board of my cygwin/NFS server
failed and I had to build a replacement.

I currently am working on the procedure for building a shared libcurl on
VAX/VMS, and when I get that done I will make some binary kits and
submit the files needed for creating the shared images.

Once I get the kits built to verify that those procedures work I will
submit those scripts and files.

Thanks for getting these fixes in. I need to get the shared image
packages as part of the work in getting "git" to be built native on VMS.
