However, savecore didn't find a core dump. Any ideas or suggestions about what this might be? Is savecore problematic for anyone else?

  It's not problematic at all - just plain not implemented:

sys/arch/vax/vax/machdep.c:436: switch ((*bdev->d_dump) (dumpdev, 0, 0, 0)) {

Which means dump 0 bytes of memory starting at location 0 to block 0 of the specified device.
