I have attached for you a patch against the current emulators/simh
package. Just

# cd /usr/pkgsrc/emulators/simh
# patch < simh-3.7.3.patch
# make && make install

I just tested this - on a NetBSD 4.0 i386 VMWare2.0 machine, running
simh-vax - running NetBSD-4.0 ...

Networking works just fine , so I believe it should be working for
Vax/VMS as well.

If you don't care to compile it yourself, I have also left a package
for you at - you need only the
simh bit, the rest have been created by pkgsrc during the build.
