PostgreSQL for VAX on NetBSD/OpenBSD

Hello VAX Enthusiasts:

PostgreSQL currently has some very minimal code to support the VAX
architecture.  We have never supported OpenVMS, so this code would
only be used if someone were to compile PostgreSQL for VAX on an
operating system that we *do* support, such as NetBSD or OpenBSD.
However, we don't know of anyone who has tried to do this in a very
long time, and are therefore considering removing the remaining
support for the VAX platform.  Has anyone tried to build PostgreSQL
for VAX lately?  If so, did it compile?  Did you have to use
--disable-spinlocks to get it to compile?  If it did compile, can you
actually run it, and does it pass the regression tests and work as
expected?  Would you be willing to work with the PostgreSQL to ensure
continuing support for this platform, or does that seem not worthwhile
for whatever reason?
