In an independent development effort (I was unaware of Ovies
Brabson's) I got 1.3.9 running with patches to src/os/unix
(some conditional compilation), rather than a separate os390
directory.  Martin Kraemer rather approved of this effort in
a private communication.  (After all, IBM says, "MVS _is_ UNIX" :-)
Ovies equally disapproved.  I don't know how this fits with
Martin's suggestion of an EBCDIC module.

I favor os390=unix.
