What is the current status of the QDSS? I'm putting together the pieces 
of a Vax4000/200, and plan on sticking my QDSS into it, and wondered if 
it's supported at all (even as glass).

Also, I'm having trouble building a kernel with 1.6.1. When I do 'make 
depend', I get:

depending the compat library objects
cat ../../../../arch/vax/vax/  |  sh 
../../../../kern/ cc  -mno-asm-pic -ffreestanding  -O2 -Werror -W
all -Wno-main -Wno-format-zero-length -Wpointer-arith 
-Wmissing-prototypes -Wstrict-prototypes -Wno-uninitialized  -D_VAX_IN
LINE_ -I.  -I../../../../arch -I../../../.. -nostdinc -DLKM -DMAXUSERS=8 
-D_KERNEL -D_KERNEL_OPT   > assym.h.tmp &&  mv -f a
ssym.h.tmp assym.h
cc1: Invalid option `no-asm-pic'
*** Error code 1

make: stopped in /sys/arch/vax/compile/NEBULA

Any ideas? I think this is actually a 1.6.1_RC3 system, with release-1-6 
kernel sources.

Please reply directly, I'm off list right now.
