No, vms/Makefile.am got seriously in the way.  :(  The autotools get a bit
confused by a makefile that didn't want to make anything.  Maybe there's a
way out (there usually is) but this way was simple.  

I didn't think about the CVS files; adding "vms" to the list of
EXTRA_DISTS was just too easy.  Otherwise the files to include have to be
enumerated.  If they cause you grief, we'll do something.
