I implemented this (with some help from Ragge) and submitted it to the
PostgreSQL folks, and it was included into the distribution. If it
has broken since, I'll fix it -- I hope to have one of my VAXen up and
running -current again within days, and getting a current PostgreSQL
working on it will be a high priority. (Actually, I know of at least
one thing I did wrong: there are a number of "#ifdef vax" in there,
which should be "#if defined(vax) || defined(__vax__)" these days.)
